Stunning pillows made by great ladies

Here in the centre of Dordrecht a beautiful initiative had come to life. It started as a small group of women making textile design products and has grown into a little company of I believe 20 or 25 women (all kinds of nationalities, volunteers or in a reintegrationproject). They make the prettiest pillows and blankets I've ever seen, you can really see and feel the quality of the thick, soft fabrics.
And the building where they work is a very old impressive one with high ornamental ceilings and wool and fabric everywhere. It's a dream.
I would love to be a volunteer....but I'm only free on wednesdays and then they're closed. Life can be bitter sometimes...
If you're in the neighbourhood, you should really pay them a visit in the Voorstraat (and e-mail me to join you!)...
