A microenterprise program of The Alliance that empowers refugee women artisans
The Community Cloth is a micro-enterprise initiative of The Alliance that empowers refugee women in Houston, Texas. It targets economic, educational and social goals through the provision of training and peer support, and by expanding market opportunities for refugee women artisans.
It supports the artisans in creating and selling handmade, indigenous arts and crafts such as woven scarves, knitwear, household items, children's hats, bags and more. All proceeds go directly to the artisans and the program.
The Community Cloth currently works with 38 refugee women artisans who come from Myanmar (Burma), Bhutan, Iraq and Afghanistan.
