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.
Amsha - Rwanda
Amsha's philosophy is to create mindful goods with environmentally friendly and fair trade practices in place. Through the purchase of their goods, they are able to provide job opportunities, fair pay, education and market access to women artisans living in under served communities in Rwanda.
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.
Nyumbani Design - Tanzania
We have collaborated with a well known Tanzanian brand called Nyumbani Design to create some exquisite serving utensils. Using different types of locally sourced woods, these beautiful pieces have been hand crafted and shaped exclusively for us by the skilled wood carvers in her workshop.
Moyo Designs - Tanzania
East African fabrics and culture boast a unique vibrancy. This inspired us to source some bright and colourful home accents from a design house in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania's bustling port city. The products are crafted from elegant Swahili textiles and meticulously hand sewn by the artisans.
