Rubia Textiles on sale at the Currier Museum on International Women's Day

Please join Rubia at the Currier Museum's Ladies Night Out in honor of International Women's Day on March 8. We'll be selling hand-dyed mudcloth (bogolan) and indigo from Mali and hand-embroidered purses and pillows from Afghanistan. It promises to be a fun night with music, henna tattoos, and custom poetry.

We are grateful to our host Heidi Norton who has featured in the Museum Store Rubia's Sewing Confidence products made by refugee  women living in Manchester.  And many thanks to Lynn Thomson, the Currier's Manager of Community Education and Outreach,  for partnering with Rubia over the years  on an African Handbags Workshop; a Panel Discussion about Refugees in New Hampshire; and a special tour of the Romare Bearden exhibit for refugee women.

   On International Women's Day, Rubia will feature hand-dyed bogolan (mudcloth) and indigo scarfs in a variety of natural colors. Malian women and young artists made them out of Helvetica-certified 100% organic cotton.  (Model: Riley Hellinger; Photo credit: Jessica Antoline)
