Sabahar - Ethiopia
Ethiopia is booming in new industries and ethical development. We are excited to be partnering with a certified fair trade organisation in Addis Ababa that produces uniquely designed cotton and silk products for the contemporary home, using traditional production methods.
WomenCraft - Tanzania
Handmade within the post-conflict tri border areas of Burundi, Rwanda and Tanzania. Our artisan partner employs more than 300 rural East African women, some of which are refugees that have fled conflict. They weave beautiful tablemats and trays for us, all ethically made, fair trade and using natural materials.
YEWO - Malawi
YEWO believes that design should not sacrifice social responsibility and the things we wear should be a reflection of our values. As a social enterprise and jewellery design studio, every item is thoughtfully crafted. YEWO's goal is to create honest, beautiful goods through small scale production, while providing a sustainable income for their self taught craftspeople.
People of the Sun - Malawi
We have partnered with a wonderful organisation in Malawi that supports local artisans. They produce an array of contemporary fusion designs, which are both unique and functional. People of the Sun help low-income artisans build sustainable businesses, which in turn allows them to preserve their cultural heritage and ensure age-old techniques survive for the next generation. They have made stunning jars for us using locally sourced and recycled materials.
