All of our blankets, swaddles, ring slings and towels are handwoven by women weavers in rural Tanzania. We are proud to be able to support and empower these women through Mamoyo and connect them with new markets. Many of these artisans are mothers and when women work communities and economies flourish in a positive way.
They were started by a European mission group in the 70s. The group left a few years later, and the women were left with 5 handlooms that had been donated (they are still using these same looms). One of the Tanzanian women who was taught by them in the beginning then began teaching other women in the village how to weave. She chooses vulnerable and disabled women to teach, not just anyone. We are their biggest supporters.
We always strive to be as true to the original design as possible. However, as with most handmade items, they each carry its own set of unique differences. These handwoven goods are just as unique as each of the ladies who have created them. Dimensions may vary ever so slightly.
