Handmade in Malawi  at a sewing cooperative with a mission to train women in business and sewing skills enabling them to become more successful while adhering to fair trade principles. The majority of women working at the cooperative have begun their own tailoring businesses, and many have used earnings to send their children to the university.
With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
Although 65% of Malawi's population lives below the poverty line, the country often is referred to as "the warm heart of Africa." The cooperative way of life is prominent in villages and has fostered centuries of artistic works that reflect shared spiritual beliefs and cultural practices.
