About DreamWeave is a nonprofit social enterprise transforming incarcerated women's lives, one handbag at a time.
DreamWeave cover
Mission Transform incarcerated women's lives by providing job skills and a trade through reentry-focused art therapy program and education to help them build their dreams.
Description Women in jail and prison need hope. And job skills. Let’s give them a trade and education to build their dreams.

Welcome to DreamWeave, a first nonprofit social enterprise in any jail or prison in Tennessee, and one of the first of its kind in America’s correctional system. With our Nashville-based non-profit social enterprise venture called DreamWeave, we’re in the Davidson County, Tennessee jail teaching female inmates, through an entrepreneurial art therapy approach, to hand-craft beautifully-woven purses using recycled snack bags and paper products. Each artisan will write her story and a message of inspiration to accompany the purses, and she’ll weave a hand-written personal dream into every handbag. But it’s more than that. We’ll also teach the women business and life skills curriculum to help them aspire to be entrepreneurial dreamers with hopes for a brighter future.

We’re renewing lives. And recycling products.
The handbags will be distributed and marketed with the talents of women who have returned to society after incarceration. Our chic bags will be sold online and in boutiques to consumers who want to purchase products that are fashion-forward and mission worthy.

Support DreamWeave. Help transform women’s lives. One bag at a time.
