Aagor Dagra Afad grew out of a project called “Weaving Peace” initiated in 2002 by THE ANT, the project built on the highly skilled weaving traditions of tribal communities to bring wages and employment to local women.
This is a women weavers organization in Assam that uses the rich weaving tradition of the tribal communities like Bodo Tribe in Chirang district to make contemporary products like garments, upholstery etc. The trust also works on larger issues like health, women’s empowerment, information, livelihoods and sensitizing people to press for their entitlements and alternate income opportunities through weaving, agriculture and off farm activities.
Using traditional weaving designs, they create some beautiful stuff like garments, cushions, table throws, bags, stoles, scarves and desk accessories.
