Water Color

This colorful shower curtain will have you looking at water in a new light. The outer side is a vibrant patchwork of African, wax print cottons with floral bursts and intricate patterns. The waterproof lining on the back is made from reclaimed water sachets--clear plastic pouches that are the only reliable source of clean water for many people in Ghana and other impoverished nations. The pouches' labels are left in place, giving a splash of visual interest to the reverse of the curtain. Handmade in Ghana.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.


Made in Ghana

Ronnie Shaw received his Bachelor’s degree in American Studies from the University of California, Berkeley in the fall of 2003. In conjunction with research on West African dance, his passion as an avid dancer and academic, he was compelled to study abroad at the University of Ghana in West Africa, which changed his life. After living in Ghana, his commitment to creating progress in Africa was solidified: "People often refer to Africa as a place of absolute hopelessness but there is a spirit of kindness, love, and humanity that I’d never experienced in my life prior to going to Ghana. It is my goal to utilize the vibrant beauty of African culture, dance and music, and weave it into a tapestry of change for the well-being of the people."
