From Her Hands, to Your Home
"Since weaving my life has changed, I have gained freedom and can support my family and I thank God for this. It was a hard life before I joined the basket weaving cooperative, I was a widow supporting five children. But when I joined this group I met different women with similar lives who were working and earning money to support their families. We meet every Saturday, we sit for two hours, making these baskets, giving each other advice and much needed comfort."
Let nothing be wasted.
Give new life to descended materials. The Ankole Horn Earring Collection brings a second generation and new form to native Ankole Watusi cow horn. Rural Ugandan cattle farmers depend on raising herds that both brings food to markets and supports their families and communities. The horn is an upcycled material that is creatively reused into truly one of a kind jewelry. No two pieces are alike.
