Founder Ellen Dorsch visited rehab centres in Ethiopia where women were sewing and embroidering table cloths. There market was a small bazaar and ex-pats living in Addis Ababa as their customers. The opportunity to improve the lives of these women and maintaining a centuries-old art became apparent.
