Many remote villages don't have a formal place called a school.  The men will raise a temporary structure using local materials and the women will come together and weave cloth to use and sell.  As subsistence farmers sell their annual crops families will then pool what funds they can to buy the necessary supplies needed to bring about their dream for their children’s future through education.  These funds will be used to build a wall, put in a floor, or buy some metal for a roof. Bit by bit they labor and watch their dream grow over the years knowing that without a “school” there won’t be a teacher and without a teacher their children will be denied an education.  The Alie Duster is one of my favorite outfits because of the hand-woven cloth it is made from.  I think of all of the hands that have touched this cloth throughout this process and I hope when you wear this Duster you will feel the energy of the hopes and dreams for education that went into its creation.
