How we work
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs)
In everyday practice, Ita’i Our Cloth is aligned with and committed to 9 out of the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs). These include, No Poverty; Zero Hunger, Quality Education; Gender Equality; Decent Work & Economic Growth; Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure; Reduced Inequality; Sustainable Cities & Communities; Responsible Consumption & Production. More specifically, Ita’i is well-positioned to ‘enhance the use of enabling technology, in particular information and communications technology, to promote the empowerment of women’.
The objective is simply to keep our women weaving. Starting with Okene in 2019, Ita’i engaged fifteen (15) weaving homes within the community that have been weaving steadily for this project. To ensure conformity and overall quality control, Ita’i purchases all weaving materials from one source, and all required designs, patterns, colours guidelines are strictly followed by participating weavers. Ita’i then supplies the woven cloth to participating designers/artists
