SONE-TU is a social enterprise producing handwoven textiles made of handspun or machine spun cotton. Our throws, cushion covers, blankets, bedspreads, and scarves are handwoven on traditional looms by Chin women living in Rakhine state.
SONE-TU focuses on respect for people and culture. We provide Chin people with education and job opportunities to become economically independent and preserve their traditional cultural heritage. Many traditional Chin patterns are incorporated into textiles designed by Mai Ni Ni.
We teach Chin women weaving skills and create jobs for them to earn a fair wage. Wider community support is provided by enabling Chin children from remote areas to attend school while receiving food, housing, and tuition support.
Our London office keeps stock of products that we will soon present on our webshop for retailers. Importers can also buy from stock in Yangon.
