Meaning & Purpose
Uganda, officially known as the Republic of Uganda, is a landlocked country located in the central/east region of Africa. It borders Kenya, South Sudan, D.R. of the Congo, Tanzania, and Rwanda. It is geographically known for Lake Victoria which makes up for a large portion of its southern region. Uganda is within the Nile Basin, which causes equatorial climate conditions within the country. Uganda gained its independence from the UK in 1962 and the current capital is Kampala. Uganda is known for coffee, tea and other raw material exports, and now, today baskets and artisan craft are becoming a pride of the nation.
Our stance on ethically made comes down to the simplest goal: empower people and stand for what’s right. Any products made outside the US are fair-trade certified and any products made in the global north are made by independent artists and small non profits.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to sustainable business practices, whether that’s our Kraft recycled bags or the sustainable practices our vendors follow. We’re doing our best to be good for Mother Earth.
Inclusivity is at the core of what we do, whether it’s size, gender, sexual orientation, or race, we are welcoming with open arms. Our store is a safe space for all.
Women are overlooked in countries in the global south, meaning they are the first to end up in poverty, unless they have a son to take care of them. But giving handouts isn’t what we do, we purchase our goods from women who’ve been empowered to make their own money!
