Two years ago the ROOTS women said they would like to learn a new skill that would benefit themselves and could be marketed to local people. They felt their best opportunity was to learn sewing and tailoring. US funders bought four sewing machines; tailoring classes were held at the centre. Check out the shirts being made on the ROOTS Facebook page.
The ROOTS Project has been invited for the fifth consecutive year to the International Folk Art Market in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This is the largest market of its kind in the US. Join us July 8-10, 2016
The corsets shown were made at the ROOTS Centre in Juba. They represented the Project at the launch of Culture Story at the Museum of Brands in London February 20th, 2016
