Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) of handwoven textiles: Female Entrepreneurship in Indonesia and the PhilippinesSustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) of handwoven textiles: Female Entrepreneurship in Indonesia and the Philippines
Traditional hand-woven textiles are produced in one third of provinces in the Philippines and throughout the Indonesian archipelago. Entrepreneurs often fail to meet buyer demands for quantity, quality and timeliness due to poor product standardization and lacking technical capacity. Limited access to supplies of quality natural dyes and eco-fibres also limits production. Lack of awareness among producers and urban consumers on eco-labelling or product standards means that producers mostly produce for local markets, and fail to realise a premium on wider markets.
The project aims to promote sustainable consumption and production (SCP) of hand-woven eco-textiles in Indonesia and the Philippines by scaling up successful SCP practices throughout the market chain, and supporting the development of an enabling policy environment.
