A NOTE FROM ANGELA ROBINSON (U.S. Representative for Mushana)
Women in Uganda and international designers work together under one sun to produce products exclusive to Mushana. Beads, fashion items, home accessories, art and jewelry are hand-crafted by villagers from Uganda using recycled and local materials. Recycled paper and glass, hand-woven bark cloth, and hand-painted cotton fabrics are lovingly crafted into stunning home and fashion products. Natural vegetable dyes, create a full color palette from soft neutrals to rich, vibrant hues.
These women from Uganda are all survivors and have found their way to making a better life through the work and passion of Mushana. These up cycled materials mean up cycled lives which empowers and sustains their daily lives. I am happy to be a friend of Women Beyond Survival which makes a difference in the lives of women all over the world.
Best to you Angela Robinson
