Made in Senegal

After being a world traveler for many years, Leslie Mittelberg stumbled upon Africa. As soon as she stepped onto the soil, she knew she was going to have a long-term love affair with this continent. The vast, wild and rich culture invaded her heart and forever altered her conservative mindset. She is blessed with both incredibly devoted suppliers and staff, all committed to the same cause. Their passion is to educate, improve livelihoods and bring independence to rural African communities. Her artist group is currently involved in direct product development work in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Mozambique, South Africa, Ghana, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso and Sudan, and they are a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation.
