Raina Mazwiembiri

Raina's husband, George, started making seedpod birds as a means to earn extra income for their family in 1994. A few years later Raina joined him and together they sold their birds at local craft shops and markets. As her husband moved on to other endeavors Raina took over the enterprise on her own and now works with two of her daughters.
