World textiles collection

The history of a place can be read in its textiles, their stories woven into the very fibre and threads. This World Textiles collection from Trade Aid celebrates traditional handmade textiles from all corners of the globe.

Materials and techniques, painted and printed, dyed, sewn, embroidered, and embellished, are both beautiful and fascinating. Each culture has its own stories and myths, and every textile represents a work of art, and a story of tradition and time.

At Trade Aid we create real relationships with the producers of our products, and this includes meeting them face to face. Members of our team regularly visit skilled artisans and witness first-hand the craftsmanship behind our beautiful handmade products. If you would like details of any of the techniques displayed in this collection, or if you would like to feature any of these products please get in touch.
