Selvedge is about to undertake its most ambitious event to date. In July 2020 we will be partnering with the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market to bring a version of that event, The Selvedge World Fair, to London. Staged by our not-for-profit Selvedge Foundation, this will be a three-day celebration of textiles, where a curated group of world-renowned artisans will share their skills, and show and sell their work.
The potential impact of an event like this is huge - from supporting the creative economy to preserving endangered crafts. But in order to bring the Selvedge World Fair to life, our Foundation needs to raise funds to cover the costs of staging the event and to enable our artisans to travel to and to stay with us in London. This is why I am asking for your support. Please consider donating to our campaign - we would be hugely grateful for any donation, however large or small. Every donation received will bring us one step closer to staging this extraordinary exhibition.
