Women's Cooperative, India 2015

Women's cooperatives are places were village women can come to produce various products, usually fabric based, that then are sold to supplement their income.  The cooperatives also provide them with a feeling of self-confidence, and give them a chance to socialize and find out whats news in the villages.  We visited one such cooperative and watched women working at sewing machines producing shirts, pants, etc., using an heritage block printing technique to pattern long lengths of cloth, making quilts and other processes.  Usually one or more of their children were close bye.
