Meet the Maker

Mbare

Weaving goes back generations in Africa, a skill passed down by woman to woman. As messengers of culture, Mbare enthusiastically brings the spirit of Africa to you. In the language of the Shona People of Zimbabwe, Mbare is pronounced “im-bah-ree” and means “a gathering of things” or “marketplace”.

The Inspiration

Based in Africa, for over the last 20+ years Mbare has empowered over 2,000 artisans by engaging in fair trade and sustainable partnerships, from urban workshops, cooperatives to remote rural villages.

The Impact

When you buy a fairly traded and handmade product, theres a thread of energy that you connect with, from the artisan who made it to all the hands that made sure it got safely to you. You're part of the sustainability chain and are supporting fair trade practices directly with your purchase.
