From the people of.......
Our mission is to support the financial empowerment of Zambian women by connecting Zambia's artisans to people in America and Europe.
We specialize in sourcing hand-sewn non-medical grade face masks made by local Zambian women from Ndola. Each mask begins life as a breathable cotton-blend fabric. We then work closely with the women to combine the fabric and patterns with our mask designs. As each mask is individually hand-sewn, no two products are identical. The masks are therefore truly unique to our customer.
Our goal is to raise $100,000 for non-profit organizations in Zambia and to donate 100,000 masks to non-profit organizations in the US.
