Embroidered Blocks

The blocks on this page were made by women and girls from the Global South who have used embroidery to describe their struggle against poverty and discrimination. In the process they have become skilled fiber artists.Click here to view their profiles. The Advocacy Project has supported the artists with advanced training and will continue to provide technical advice to ensure the highest possible quality. Each artist is developing her own unique product and in making a purchase customers are investing in the artist as well as her embroidery. All profits will go to the artists in the different communities. We will be continually adding blocks so check back regularly.
