In fashion

It is co-operative fashion week online, as co-ops involved in clothing and design from around the world post their stories on http://www.stories.coop

First up is Royah. “Afghanistan used to produce fantastic silk, but it lost much of its talent and capacity over 27 years of conflict,” explains Gabriella Ghidoni. She founded the co-op along with two others in 2005. The design co-operative, which now employs twenty women, has a two-fold mission: to revive the country’s rich history in textiles and embroidery, and to create sustainable job opportunities for local women.
