We are excited to say that we have a few select pieces from Indego Africa available. Please send us a message at email@example.com if you're interested in purchasing one of these beautiful pieces!
Indego Africa is all about empowering and uplifting artisan women in Africa and helping them become empowered businesswomen through employment opportunities and education. In fact, since partnering with Indego Africa, 78% of their artisan partners have risen above the poverty line. Now that's impact!
They work with 25 groups of more than 1,000 women in Rwanda and Ghana to sell products that are designed in New York City and handmade in Africa—combining traditional techniques, local materials and amazing artisanal skill. They provide their partners with fair, consistent income for their artistry which, in turn, enables them to care for themselves and their families.
Indego Africa invests all of their profits from product sales, with grants and donations, into education programs for the artisans who handcraft the products.
Their courses range from leadership and entrepreneurship to financial and business management to skills-based vocational training & more.
Indego Africa believes that educating women is the key to long-term empowerment and social change. Through the education programs, their partners develop the knowledge and skills they need to grow their own enterprises, become entrepreneurs, and uplift entire communities—creating employment opportunities for others and setting new standards for what women can achieve!
We first fell in love with the fantastic design, but the story behind these goods in even more compelling. In addition, the quality is top notch. We only have one or two of each piece left!
