Meaning & Purpose
A Ugandan weaver crafted this exquisite masterpiece using locally sourced raffia plant and sweet grass. This purchase guarantees fair, stage wages for this talented artisan. Prior to working with KAZI, many artisans worked manual labor jobs or as local vendors. It was financially difficult to support themselves and their children. KAZI weavers have become respected local leaders and primary income earners of their households. Ugandan women weave in small groups, building community and mastering their trade. They can now invest in their childrens' education, increase their savings, and plan for a hopeful future.
Kazi is on a mission to create the world's most beautiful gifts, handmade by master craftsman in rural Africa. Modern design meets traditional techniques. Kazi designs on-trend conversational wall statements, serveware and lighting which are then translated into natural fibers through direct work with skilled weavers.
