The charity is supporting the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange by allowing all participating artisans to join the NEST Guild for no fee. An arrangement which came to fruition following the Swarovski Foundation’s partnership with Nest, which has been active since 2014. The Nest Guild is a community of more than 400 artisan businesses across more than 70 countries. While employing artisans practicing diverse crafts from shibori dyeing to hand reed weaving, Guild businesses are unified in their common goals for business growth and social improvement in their local communities. The Guild includes access to an online learning hub as well as pro-bono mentoring to help craft-based businesses grow at a scale.
