What is Dyescape?

WHAT WE DO
ANCHAL'S MISSION IS TO ADDRESS THE EXPLOITATION OF WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD BY USING DESIGN THINKING TO CREATE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES, SERVICES & PRODUCTS THAT SUPPORT EMPOWERMENT.
Anchal’s dyeScape project is a natural dye initiative that provides career opportunities in eco-friendly textile production to exploited women in Louisville. A network of vacant lots grow dye plants that are harvested for the production of naturally dyed products created by the women involved.
dyeScape will empower women, revolutionize the industrialized textile system, educate the community about sustainable textile practices and build productive urban landscapes that facilitate beauty and investment.
