Lecture by Eve Blossom
Trained as a designer/architect with an astute eye for design, Eve Blossom discovered a passion for the hand-woven textiles of Southeast Asia while spending two years restoring French villas in Vietnam. During her travels throughout the region, she met master weavers, learned their stories, and was moved by their remarkable talents and spirit. Blossom seeks to empower these artisans through creating a viable economic engine that celebrates their spirit, talents and traditions, giving them a stable foundation for their future. Lulan Artisans integrates Blossom's design sensibilities with her commitment to create social change. Blossom takes pride in Lulan's products and loves working closely with its partners: more than 650 weavers, spinners, dyers, and finishers in small workshops in Cambodia, India, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam.
