Our Weavers

Sera Helsinki started with eight women weavers. We were innovating different weaving  techniques together, how to produce Scandinavian designs. We trained these women to  understand geometrics and how to measure. These eight women have trained about 160  artisans in Addis Abeba. We have several workshops in the city. Some of the workshops operate  as NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) and some as private businesses. Most of the  artisans have a disability. The disability might be for example visual impairment, deaf,  intellectual disability, physical impairment of legs and arms. Sera Helsinki and Abilis foundation  have been helping with accessibility renovation of the workshops. The renovations have  included for example building ramps and improving lighting of the premises.
