I am a researcher -more lately with my work around textile and fiber design and history. When I found out about Nest co-op, I instantly became a member back in December. Founded by Rebecca van Bergen in 2006, she followed her passion to turn craft, the 2nd largest employer of women globally, into a means to correct the gender and income imbalance in our world, she was 24.
Nest has many programs, along with an ethically handcrafted seal for those that are meeting the standards outlined. The Nest Seal is a symbol of assurance letting consumers know that the items they shop, from fashion to furniture, have been ethically handcrafted in a home or small workshop.
