Made in Malawi by: Umoja Crafts

Umoja Crafts (Malawi) means “union of women” in Swahili and is a social enterprise by women at the Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Malawi. The group is mainly composed of over 50 Rwandan and Burundian refugees who are working to support their families amidst the challenging living conditions of the refugee camp. These entrepreneurial women appreciate the income and camaraderie fostered by Umoja, and are eager to learn new designs and business skills. They have adapted and continued traditional basket weaving techniques from their homelands to make a range of products. Sustainable materials are used for woven craftwork, including up-cycled food ration bags and sustainable sisal fiber. They make the items you see here!
