Who Handmade Your Product with Love?: Our Kitenge Bag collection comes from a small female-owned shop in Arusha, Tanzania. Sophie the owner is a self-made woman with a 7th-grade education who beat all odds and has created a successful business and small seamstress school all on her own. Her entrepreneurial spirit guided her through many hardships to sustain herself and help other women around her in need. She is now the proud owner of her own shop, and as it is in her nature to help those around her, she teaches girls from her community the seamstress skills she has learned to help ensure them a self-sufficient life as well. Sophie’s smile lights up the room and her hands and her heart are in every product she makes. Her Team of girls are meticulously held to high standards, and when they have proven their skills, they are lovingly granted the position of making beautiful, handmade Save the Rain products with traditional African Kitenge Fabrics. Because of supporters like you, we are able to create relationships with villagers like Sophie, empowering women across the globe to pursue their dreams and share their gifts.
