Each item at Indego Africa is made by hand using traditional, time honored techniques in Rwanda and Ghana. Indego Africa is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering artisan women in Africa through employment opportunities and education. 100% of the companies proceeds fund education programs for the artisans who handcraft all of their products.

Behind the Design: We partner with artisans in Rwanda who make handwoven platters and baskets using raffia: a straw-like fiber that can be stripped from the inside of palm tree leaves. The fibers are found only in a special species of palm tree that grows abundantly across sub-Saharan Africa. The artisans weave the raffia fibers using a needle and thread, creating a range of shapes, designs, and products that look beautiful in natural raffia tones or when hand-dyed.
