Little Proba and Toni Garrn Foundation Create Rugs Designed by Girls in Ghana
The collection helps close the gender gap in education.
Little Proba led virtual workshops with students in Ghana, teaching them about the intricacy of art. Inspired by their lessons, these intelligent girls created one-of-a-kind handmade posters to join the handwoven rugs created by women in India.
Founded by multidisciplinary artist Alex Proba, Little Proba supports women every step of the way, including their invaluable skills in the production process as well as giving back to communities, near and abroad.
Beautiful scenic tapestries portraying the whimsy of nature make up the collection. 100% proceeds of the “TGFxLittle Proba” collection go to the Toni Garrn Foundation. The collection includes 27 rug designs made of 100% New Zealand wool and bamboo silk. The home decor pieces are available in custom sizes. 27 poster designs are printed on high-quality 330 GSM paper with archival ink and come in three dimensions.
With prices ranging from $25 to $425 USD, the artisan handmade rugs and posters are made to order at Studio Proba’s website.
