We seek to connect people and resources in a mutually beneficial way. More than 1% of the world’s biodiversity is represented within an isolated region of northeastern Madagascar. Here, in its largest remaining rainforest, farmers and artisans are engaging in a new kind of conservation: wild silk production.
We believe in finding a balance between the needs of people and nature by creating an effective and innovative environment-conserving enterprise. We have developed a new solution to conservation issues by working with farmers to plant native trees. These become the host plants to endemic silk worms, whose cocoons are harvested and used to create unique wild silk textiles. This enterprise gives both farmers and artisans the opportunity to earn a comfortable living wage.
100% of the profits from Tanana are returned directly to our farmers and artisans in Madagascar.
Product Specialties: DIY Items (fabric, loose beads, etc), Housewares (Tableware, Linens, Baskets, and Decor), Personal Accessories (Bags, Hats, Scarves, etc.)
