SAORI Handweaving Project was set up as occupational therapy to help those affected by the Tsunami in Thailand in December 2004.  SAORI is a hand-weaving programme founded in 1968 by Mrs Misao Jo in Osaka.  SAORI cloth is made by freely weaving wool threads across hundreds of warp threads that are stretched on a simple wooden loom.  The cloth is then used to make pouches, pen cases, coasters etc.  Its technical simplicity and wide variety of colours and patterns have made it very popular in Japan and it is now becoming more widely known around the world.  Buying these SAORI Project products is helping provide income generating opportunities for those whose lives changed forever when the tsunami hit.
