'I wasn't able to finish school due to financial difficulties. I don't use any chemicals because I want to contribute to the preservation of the environment. I make colors from leaves, seeds and flowers to dye the virgin wool.' What is Worldstock? The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
