In Her Hands
By

Rating
Foreword by Alice Walker. From the dollmakers of Turkey to the batik artists of Indonesia, women in developing economies provide for their families by creating and selling indigenous crafts which draw on cultural traditions. Often driven by the harsh realities of poverty, these craftswomen come together in groups creating a kind of micro-enterprise, often strengthened into cooperatives through financial aid. In this volume we hear their individual voices, culled from five years of travelling and meeting these resourceful and creative women.

About the Author

Authors Paola Gianturco and Toby Tuttle have spent five years photographing, interviewing, and writing about craftswomen for this amazing collection. The artisans' individual voices are featured throughout the book as the authors describe their encounters with the craftswomen; amusing, affecting journal entries relate the authors' own experiences and reflections. "In Her Hands" celebrates a different kind of women's movement--one in which mothers, sisters, grandmothers, and friends join together to create beautiful crafts that contribute to a better life for themselves, their families, and for future generations.
