“Gnadaa” means “walk” in Sri Lankan Tamil.
This is a social fashion project to support women’s self-reliance in the former civil war area in northern Sri Lanka. By turning the sewing skills that have been passed down for families into “work,” Gnadaa provides continuous support to women so that they can realize their “work” in society.
There is also a connection to Japan.
Through this exhibition, we would like to show you the history of Gnadaa and the women of Sri Lanka.
