Story Mfg. in Japan

Story Mfg. in Japan

20 August 2020: In this short video coming out of Japan one half of Story Mfg, Saeed Al-Rubeyi, shares that the main passion of Story is for the crafts to continue to thrive. We share this passion and agree that especially at this point in time it is good to grow (slowly) by adding persons employed rather than machines. The most important thing that Story Mfg does for the earth, though, Al-Rubeyi exlplains, is to research and use natural dyes. The Colours of Nature are happy to contribute dyes and other textile related crafts to this fascinating client of ours.

Nest Initiative has donated 200,000 masks and counting

Nest Initiative has donated 200,000 masks and counting

29 May 2020: As we have recently shared, we participated in a Nest initiative to help sustain artisans through work, paired with ensuring that people in need of masks can get them.
Nest (www.buildanest.org) in turn partnered with Qurate Retail Group, Etsy, Mastercard, Target, Amazon, The Cordes Foundation and the Winn Family Foundation to bring this much needed help to The Colours of Nature and other businesses. In addition to bringing much needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the world.
Through the Nest initiative, critical funding was provided to 56 artisan businesses across 25 countries. The Colours of Nature is grateful to have been one of those businesses.
In total, more than 200,000 masks were donated (and counting!) as a result of the Nest COVID-19 response and PPE Purchasing initiative, which saw work shifting to PPE production.
Here a video of some of the incredible work done around the world: https://vimeo.com/418258977
We thank Nest and are more than happy to continue onwards in our artisanal efforts, together with our fellow guild members.
