Raffia Mats / Wall Hangings
Handmade by marginalised women from Kampala, Uganda using banana riddle, raffia and natural dyes
"Just know the mats were weaved with love by them and the highest number are out of school rural mothers from who dropped out of school due to various reasons and along the way some got pregnant by rape caused by relatives or even fathers. Hence becoming women/mothers at an early age, some went into early marriages that never worked etc.
Making these items is the only source of income that they depend upon. By acquiring this you are empowering them to get basic necessities of life. " Team Manager
