Sure, they may look like awesome, handwoven rugs, but that's only where this story starts. For re: loom hires homeless women (full-time, too!), teaching them to weave so they can successfully support their families while heading down a path toward a better life. Weaving requires taking things slowly, practicing and tenacity — all important life skills; and each weaver makes her pieces based on her own ideas, some based on the weather, others on joy and sorrow. In addition, all of the pieces are made from donated and upcycled textiles.
