We bring soul enriching experiences to free spirited ladies with a lust for travel and a need to give something back. Through our high-quality, eco-friendly designs expertly hand-crafted by Rwandan artisans you will look stunning while feeling part of something that supports other women.
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 handbag, 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.
Every design puts extraordinary artisan 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.
My work means a lot to me, it means security and dignity. I used to rely on my husband to meet my needs in the past, which made him think of me as a useless person. From the money I earn from weaving, I can meet my needs without my husband. I used to feel useless and vulnerable but now things have changed. My husband respects me now.
I am happier and feel more valuable than before.
