Review for Warm Heart Worldwide Inc, Highland Park, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked with Warm Heart as a product designer and market researcher for a period of 3 months. I learned so much about the difficulties of ethical design while working in a place to which one has no cultural ties. I also came to understand how Warm Heart navigates these issues, and succeeds in creating beautiful, ethical products with the Phrao women's co-ops, creating work and providing stable income for their members. Warm Heart has created work for silk spinners, weavers and dyers, helping them to continue utilizing these ancient, precise skills. Together they create high quality textiles that benefit everyone involved. While there, I also experienced all of the other great things Warm Heart does for the community, such as providing a children's home for dozens of kids, and making strides in the development of biochar and sustainable agriculture.
