Weaving Our Future / Drug rehabilitation and social reintegration

The weaving sector of Comunità San Patrignano helps women suffering from drug addiction and social exclusion to get their lives back. In the search for harmony and perfection of handmade textiles women learn to recover their self-esteem, to rediscover and love themselves, making their inner search into the ability to create high quality products that are sold to high end fashion brands and top designers all over the world. Since its inception, the community Weaving Lab has offered high-level professional training to 347 disadvantaged and marginalized women facing drug rehabilitation, contributing to their social and work reintegration.
