Classification of the products


Classifying the woven products was important because every scarf and every tablecloth had a different size.
This way the women were not able to sell to a wholesale dealer, as they were asked for a dozen of the same products with the same size, which they then did not have.
Now the women make the products the same size which makes a sale easier for them.

About half of the women in the group are illiterates.
This means that they can not read numbers either. Because of this I made ropes in the sizes of the products which they can use instead of a measuring tape. To differentiate the ropes from one another I attached small cards on each one of them with photographs of the products.

The diferent woven products the women produce are for example:
tablecloths, scarfs, shawls, serviettes, zute (a cloth women use to carry things - often on their head), big cloth to carry babies and small children, table runner, placemats...
