four october giveaways!
This month Okan Arts is giving away a collection of Turtle Hand fabrics and the book Visioning Human Rights in the New Millennium: Quilting the World’s Conscience by Dr. Carolyn L. Mazlooni. There are four giveaways, each valued at $65.
Tina Hilton is the founder and leader of Turtle Hand, a fabric company that works with artisans in Malaysia to produce a full array of patterned cottons—using batik, marbling, painting, hand-dying and wax-crack processes.
Tina takes pride in her company’s ethical trade practices as Turtle Hand keeps Malaysian Heritage Crafts alive by supporting individual artisan producers and their communities. Turtle Hand also gives back by contributing to disadvantaged children, compromised indigenous people, and endangered sea turtle conservation efforts in Malaysia.
There are ten fat quarters in each giveaway bundle of Turtle Hand fabrics—a medley of Jewel Batik, Heritage Batik, Fractured Batik, and Rinkle & Dapple Hand Dyed cottons.
Quilter and author Dr. Carolyn L. Mazloomi stated “As an artist, I strongly believe art has the capacity to touch the spirit, engage, educate, and heal in ways that words alone cannot.” Carolyn’s most recent book Visioning Human Rights in the New Millennium: Quilting the World’s Conscience celebrates the 70th anniversary of the United Nations Human Rights Declaration.
The book reminds us of the impact of each of the Declaration’s 30 principles through art quilts. The 91 works of 75 textile artists express the global struggle for rights to which all human beings are innately entitled.
