DreamWeave is one of the first nonprofit social enterprises in a jail or prison.

With DreamWeave, incarcerated women are creating in vogue fashion.

As a Nashville non-profit social enterprise founded by three female business, corrections and community leaders, we’re in a local jail teaching female inmates, through an entrepreneurial art therapy approach, to hand-craft beautifully-woven purses using recycled paper products like wrapping paper, copy paper, books, magazines and chip bags.  Each artisan writes her story and a message of inspiration to accompany the purses, and she weaves a hand-written personal dream into every handbag.  But it’s more than that.  We’ll also be teaching the women business and life skills curriculum to help them aspire to be entrepreneurial dreamers with hopes for a brighter future.  And upon their release from incarceration, they may continue being a DreamWeaver with our team.

We’re employing formerly incarcerated women as the trainers for purse production.  Our chic bags are being sold to people who want to purchase products that are fashion-forward and mission worthy.

We’re renewing lives.  And recycling products.  Support DreamWeave.  Help transform women’s lives.  One bag at a time.

A program in collaboration with Family Reconciliation Center.

It has been a joy to work with the founding women of DreamWeave. This website was created with WordPress and the Divi theme.
