Hand weaving is a labor of love. It is an integral part of an indigenous woman's daily life and an important responsibility she passes on from generation to generation. We work very closely and on an ongoing basis with weavers in Guatemala and India, providing regular work and sustainable economic development to continue a rich weaving legacy.
Weaving is a tradition of textile making that remains one of the oldest surviving crafts in the world dating back 2,000 years. This ancient art uses solely manual power to form fiber to cloth. Meaning: no energy and zero waste. Hand weaving is the core manufacturing practice of Sicks. It allows us to develop low-impact products, helping to restore the balance of our planet.
