AfriBeads products are made by a group of 30 women called the AfriBeads Women's Association. Many millions of people live in extreme poverty in Africa, struggling to survive each day. Our social enterprise creates sustainable income for these artisans, who are then able to care for their families and send their children to school.
The Fashion accessories are hand-made from recycled paper cut into triangles and rolled into beads, then lacquered and made into unique creations. The Baskets, mats and bags are hand-woven using natural fibres and traditional African techniques. Fashion and homewares are made from fabrics of traditional patterns and vibrant colours sourced at the local markets in Kampala.
