Indego Africa was founded in 2007 with a simple idea - to empower women artisans in Africa by showcasing their beautiful craft and investing in the power of education. They’ve teamed up with with 25 groups of more than 1,000 women in Rwanda and Ghana to sell products that are designed with a creative voice of playfulness and an appreciation of colour in NYC and handmade in Africa using traditional techniques, local materials and genuine artisanal skill.
Indego Africa not only pay a fair wage to their teams, but also invest all their profits from sales, along with donations, into education programs for the artisans who handcraft their products. They’re on a mission to lift these talented women and their families out of poverty by offering training helping them become businesswomen on their own. Such a great initiative and such a gorgeous collection!
