The Balingsoela women have made embroidery on textile for years. The technique is a cultural heritage that is being transferred from generation to generation.
In 2020 a new product was added to the Talking Prints collection. In collaboration with Meredith Joeroeja, a talented Surinamese fashion designer, they designed the first Surinamese Kimono, called the Pangi-Mono.
The Pangi-Mono is the perfect fusion of a traditional Japanese design mixed with traditional Suriname pangi fabric and a flavor of urban streetwear. With the production of the Pangi-Mono, even more women entered their employment project.
