    ‘Costurando o Futuro’ – tailoring for a better future


    The seamstresses in the small tailor’s shop Tecose in Brazil’s São Bernardo certainly don’t have bags of gold, but the bags they make are enough to earn their livelihood. It all originated from a city development project designed to give a future to women without much education and women threatened by poverty after retiring.

Not to mention the occasional little football shirt from time to time, thanks to the football fever.
