Our Story

Our Mission ~

Giving hope to families in poverty and young women rescued from trafficking by providing sustainable livelihoods through income-generating projects.

The Eternal Threads vision began in 2000 with the Sofi tote project in a rural village in India to provide income to women who were industrious and hardworking, but limited to help their families with any additional income except to work in the rice fields once or twice a year during harvest time.

From the beginning this project was envisioned as a model to help women in many parts of the world. In 2008 this vision became a reality as Eternal Threads added four new projects. Products handmade by women in over twelve countries can now be purchased on the Eternal Threads website.

Eternal Threads began as a mission to help one group of women in India and has become a global community of women. Even though these women live in diverse areas of the world they share the same needs and hope for the future.

Our Name and Logo represent the values we invest in our organization. The artisans have handicraft skills involving threads of one kind or another…wool, silk, cotton, raffia, cording for jewelry and others. By giving them income, we weave threads of hope into their lives and generations beyond.
