Hand-made Thursdays – Indego Africa
Emphasizing entrepreneurship and independence, Indego Africa empowers African women to lift their families out of poverty through fair trade partnerships, international export market access, and long-term skills. Hand-crafted by women in Rwanda, these yoga bags bring African style and consciousness to your yoga style.
The women of Cocoki proudly design and produce these yoga bags from traditional Dutch wax cloth – using nothing but their own creativity and foot-powered sewing machines. The National Textile Museum and US Holocaust Memorial Museum have carried Indego Africa products in their museum stores in recognition of the historic and creative importance of Dutch wax cloth to African women. The bag has a zipper all the way up the side for easy packing and unpacking, plus a separate pocket for wallets, keys, etc. $45.00 USD plus 100% of profits are returned to the artisans for training in long-term skills.
