I was so impressed by the Collective and the women weavers. They were very open and friendly. They showed us how to spin the darn, dye it and then weave with it. The pieces the weavers had fr sell were beautiful.

An amazingly authentic, touching experience. Not for the faint-hearted though. It was cold but comfortable and we’d recommend it.
