After going through the programme, the trainees are directly associated with the Centre’s production. They are paid per article, at a decent price that is higher than the local going rate. This provides them with fair income.
Product line development and renewal is thought out and designed with the women, in light of their skills. The idea is to put together contemporary textile collections that are directly inspired from their age-old heritage.

Afrika Tiss will look for new international markets to secure a stable and reliable source of income for the women.
