Welcome to our secure on-line shop where you will find a fantastic range of fairly traded products from producers across Africa; Incomparable ceramic buttons, Mothers for All paper beads and jewellery, Zulu baskets, stitchmarkers from Mothers for All and Iziko lo Lwazi and Bolgatanga baskets from Ghana.
Our producers are all women who are working to empower themselves and provide a living for their families, often under very difficult conditions which we can hardly imagine.
Ceramic buttons are all fully washable and suitable for a wide range of knitting, stitching and crafting projects. Stitchmarkers are gorgeous and a real treat for a friend or even yourself! Paper beads are little works of art and silk flower brooches and corsages are just lovely.
Zulu baskets are fine examples of tribal art and a centuries old craft.
Injabulo is a Zulu word for happiness and you can be assured that purchase of any of our beautiful products helps towards lives being changed for the better. The artists earn a wage far above the minimum. Many of them live in rural areas where there is very little work. A decent wage means that they can buy good nourishing food, pay for education for their children but most importantly hold their heads high and live with dignity
We also firmly believe in supporting projects nearer to home and are great supporters of the Campaign for Wool and sell gorgeous kits from Made by Ewe using 100% British wool as well as wool blankets from Wales.
