Design21, the social design network, has a new competition. The objective: "Design a product to Wrap the World with Hope made with a check fabric." There's only one more day to apply! The application deadline is April 21 at 5:59 p.m. UTC.
Winners will receive $3,000 and be introduced by Grameen Felissimo, a new social business launched earlier this year in collaboration with the Yunus Centre, led by Prof. Muhammad Yunus, a 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner. The collaborative project will benefit the people in the villages of Bangladesh who create a special fabric called Grameen Check, made with 100 percent cotton yarn and entirely handwoven.
