What is it about?

Metráž / Yardage is a low-threshold workshop for women in need (endangered by poverty, violence, homelessness etc.) where we make quality design jewels and garments, in cooperation with Czech designers. In Yardage, women are offered help, support, know-how and, above all, earnings. Through design, we change the attitudes towards homelessness, poverty and social exclusion.
