Handwoven fruit bowl from natural fibres, in natural and white. Maua (meaning flower), was inspired by the flower seen on traditional Hangaza bowls. Artisans weave fabric in a series of carefully planned rows resulting in the emergence of a beautiful flower.
WomenCraft products are handmade in Mafigamatatu, East Africa – the tri-border area of Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi. This extraordinary, rarely-visited part of the world is defined by green hills, river valleys and its distinctive culture. The two civil wars that plagued the area have resulted in refugee-impacted areas in need of development, and former refugees that yearn to rebuild their lives. Our operations are based out of Ngara district, Tanzania
