The women could add even more value, making unique and very beautiful textile products, through the process known as upcycling, Stephano believed.
There was a need for change. The previous projects he’d witnessed offered tailoring training to women, but the women, while talented were not reaching the standards they really needed to enter the professional global market.
From traditional communities they struggled to balance their desire to learn and train with their responsibilities at home. He asked himself how he could change this cycle, coming up with a different model for women in these circumstances to give them regular income, dignity and access to opportunity.

I Was a Sari now intends to scale from 70 artisans to hundreds of women who can work with the project.

Gucci supports that ambition. Most importantly this is a programme that has been built around the women so it is centred on their needs and requirements. .
