WORLD WEAVER designs, creates and markets, under the registered brand name UNIQUE®, entirely handwoven pure natural silk scarves. WORLD WEAVER uses an ancestral know-how in the weaving of its scarves reflecting the richness of the Tunisian intangible cultural heritage.
WORLD WEAVER’s mission is to perpetuate craft traditions relating to the art of hand weaving by arousing a fresh interest from youth people in this profession (in decline) and by providing rural women with the skills required to practice the profession of hand weaving which remains for the moment, in Tunisia, a mainly male profession.
WORLD WEAVER offers you a unique, authentic, ecological, quality and socially responsible fashion accessory. By purchasing our handmade product, you not only contribute to supporting the work of rural craftspeople who are passionate about their profession and proud of their ancestral know-how, but also to their emancipation by helping them to access to fair, decent and sustainable work.
We human beings are at our best not when we are engaged in abstract solitary reflection or on our individual transformation for its own sake but when we are engaged together in the act of transforming the world.
The act of idea-generation through creative thinking and the sustained engagement in the conversation of humankind, if conducted in the context of pursuit of truth, beauty, and goodness, will lead to powerful moral action that will engender a New World. To engage in such moral action and to become a co-creator of a New World is to become a world-weaver in the act of weaving the world and a history-maker in the act of making history.
