GAIA is proud to carry the handcrafted collection from Indego Africa, a social enterprise dedicated to empowering artisan women in Africa through employment, opportunity, and education.
Behind the Design: This product was handmade by female refugees in Rwanda. Learn more about Indego Africa's Economic Inclusion for Refugees program here. Our delicately detailed hand-beaded products are crafted with love by our artisan partners in both Rwanda and Ghana. Our partners in Rwanda hand-stitch beads onto vases, baskets, and more using a needle and thread, and in Ghana, the artisans string beads which they adhere to the wood using a mud mixture. The process spans several days (and sometimes weeks!) and involves incredible skill, precision, and patience to get right.
