Songket Tradisi is a weaving co-op in Pringgasela run by Anna and Erwin.  They partnered with Tradisi to deliver this program. Through discussions with the co-op the women in the village were identified who were most in need.  During the first stage of the program we produced over 20 full-set weaving looms plus numerous single parts to enable women and families to increase their income.
