TCHOTCHKES - CROCHET BEE
Chai Modern has always worked with local Jewish artists, and to this end we have done a collaborative range with the Peta Becker Projekt - a design-based fair trade initiative, started in 2006, providing ongoing skills training to women from Zimbabwe, Malawi, Congo & South Africa. Through training, workshops and lessons their members continue to develop, and in so doing allow these women to continually add fresh elements to their design vocabulary.
The aim of this initiative has always been to create original designs, and to keep the teaching within the project, so that artisans who decide to teach can earn additional income. The makers can work from home, which suits many women with young children.
The members meet once a week to review their work, share some refreshments and collect fresh yarn and instructions for their next deliveries.
We hope that you’ll enjoy each piece of your Chai Modern & Projekt collab as much as our family has enjoyed creating them.
These items are hand made, so no two pieces will be exactly the same. The nature of their creation means that additional lead time is required.
