ArteSana is a non-profit social enterprise specializing in high quality handwoven accent pillows that help build a more equitable and sustainable world. 

We upcycle the donations of discarded tee shirts; we strip them, then use looms to weave them into products in partnership with women in our community of Holyoke, MA. Selling our products, such as throw pillow covers and table runners, generates income for our weavers, and helps fund our other offerings: free creative workshops and free ESOL classes (English for Speakers of Other Languages) made available to our community, where 40% of residents live under the poverty line.
By harnessing the power of creativity and entrepreneurship, we grow our ability to stand together undaunted in the task of leaving the world better off than we found it.
