Welcome to Songa Designs — where every basket, jewelry and handbag design is truly one of a kind. That’s an overused phrase. But here, it’s on point. When people ask, “Where did you get that gorgeous basket, I want it,” you’ll have to tell them yours is the only one.
And that’s not even the best part. Get this —
“Songa” means “the path forward” in Swahili.
Each luxurious piece we choose is made from eco-friendly materials and meticulously handcrafted by the most talented female artisans in Rwanda.
Every design puts these extraordinary women on their own path towards economic independence, increased confidence and a better life for themselves and their families.
So you’re not just acquiring something vibrant and beautifully made that speaks to a wanderlust-driven life. You’re not just getting a striking accent piece that makes your outfit or your living room.
You’re crossing your arms against mass-produced “faux exotic” and raising your hand to be part of something massively great.

We celebrate the empowerment of women around the world. Typically women in developing countries depend solely on their husbands for financial needs, but our mission is to change this dynamic. By working with us, talented artisans have the opportunity to achieve economic independence by using traditional skills passed down from generation to generation to make a living. Songa Designs provides jobs for these women who negotiate their own salaries and earn fair wages.
