The Namtenga Soundo Babisi is the sister studio of the Kingswood Weaving Studio that my students and I helped establish in Burkina Faso, Africa in 2007. We funded the building of the studio building, fifteen looms, and hired an instructor for thirty women to learn how to weave. The "sisters" are weaving together six days a week for seven hours a day, learning new skills besides just weaving, and bringing income to their families through the selling of their cloth.
