The Stitch Social Enterprise is dedicated to giving women dignified work when feeling vulnerable and isolated; we reclaim fabric and clothing and re-design it.
We aim to promote and inspire tolerance between cultures through a creative and sustainable means.
This cross-cultural group of women welcome the opportunity to be creative, developing and making products suitable for the Australian market.
The goal of the Stitch Social Enterprise is to empower the women to reach their full potential through the sale of their products, 60% of the proceeds from each item sold is returned to the individual.
All products are locally made and are available at Geelong Wholefoods Pantry and Kitchen and local markets. We are also happy to deliver a basket of products for sale to your workplace.
