CHICOBAG™ AND THE GRATEFUL THREAD
In the mid 19th century, women of the coal mining towns ofNortheastern Pennsylvania would weave and sew to help support theirfamilies. Today, women at The Grateful Thread weave and sew to supportvictims of domestic violence.
The Grateful Thread is a business initiative of Schuylkill Women inCrisis which serves Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. Your purchase oftheir products not only provides funds to support services, but alsoprovides job training opportunities to victims of domestic violence andothers re-entering the work force.
ChicoBag® and The Grateful Thread both support the environment by
offering manyproducts made from 100% recycled materials. Donated fabrics and othermaterials
are woven, knit and crocheted into colorful textiles whichare then incorporated
into everyday products such as totes, handbags,aprons, placemats, rugs, and more.
