Stitch Sainte Luce
Stitch Sainte Luce is a women’s embroidery Cooperative based in the rural southeast of Madagascar.
We create beautiful, hand-embroidered fashion accessories and home decor, with each piece being designed, stitched and hand-finished by our 96 members. We take our inspiration from the traditional Malagasy stories that have been passed from generation to generation, and from the beautiful surroundings of the area of Sainte Luce, transforming these into colourful works of embroidered art.
Stitch began as a sustainable development project under the local NGO, SEED Madagascar, in 2012 as a route to more stable and sustainable income for families in our rural home of Sainte Luce. Many of our members’ husbands are fishermen which means that our income can be unpredictable and at times, be incredibly dangerous to obtain. Like much of Madagascar’s rural populations, our income often sits below the poverty line and we have previously struggled to afford food, clothing and education for our children. The origination of the Stitch Cooperative introduced an option for a way to gain additional income which was gained flexibly around our other community responsibilities.
