Ibu and Pak Eko

This is Ibu and Pak Eko and their two young children. They are a very diligent family from Java who have a very disciplined work ethic to provide the best of quality to Stitch'd and this is to also provide for their children's futures. They are now in the process of building their first home and every month with the help of Stitch'd they continue to buy literal bricks and mortar to help their house be finished so their children will have a safe family home. They are the building blocks of Stitch'd and continue to provide work to single mums to be able to work from home while getting well paid to put food on their children's table.
