Mudita – Sanskrit meaning to take delight in the happiness of others

“I’m scared”, you tell your friend. The rock you had to climb was just too high. You didn’t want to go that high. Your fear of heights was making your breathing uneasy.

“It’s too high,” you say.

“I’ll walk up with you,” he says.

“I’ll slip on the way down,” you say.

“I’ll walk down with you,” he says.

Well crap, you think. I have no more excuses! 

After you marvel at the view at the top, the one you were too scared to climb to, you carefully make your way down with your friend acting as a safety net ahead of you.

After your feet are firmly planted on mother earth, you have a much greater appreciation for true friendships. The ones who push you to your limits. The ones who say yes when you say no. Most importantly, the ones who don’t let you believe your own b.s. and encourage you to always move forward.

Artisans train to make our designs on a regular basis to meet the high quality standards we require. Designs can take a woman between 3 - 5 days to create depending on how intricate the weave is. Our team monitors production throughout the process to minimize corrections on a finished product, saving time and money.

Songa's designs are created using carefully selected natural materials that are locally sourced and eco-friendly. We use sisal plant, banana leaf, recycled paper, upcycled fabric and re-purposed cow horn that would otherwise end up in landfills. These materials ensure the highest quality design all while keeping in mind future generations who will inherit our planet.

'Songa' means 'the path forward' in Swahili. Each design the women make furthers them along the path of financial independence. "I thank those who buy my products because I was able to build a good house. I now have 12 pigs too!" - Harriette, paper bead artisan

"Songa is all about showcasing the woman artisan. They create beautiful designs from natural fibers!" Natalie@sustainablychic

We are proud to have been featured in some of the fashion industry's most respected magazines.
