Beaded Fringe Bucket by Indego Africa
Indigo Africa's hand-beaded products are crafted with delicate detail by artisan partners in Rwanda who stitch grass and locally-sourced beads onto handwoven vases, baskets, and bucket bags using a needle and thread. Historically Rwandan Kings wore beaded crowns as symbols of their wealth and prosperity. Now a tradition in villages across Rwanda, the beading process can span more than a month of incredibly precise and patient handwork. Small batch production means no two beaded Indego pieces are exactly the same.

Indego Africa partners with groups of artisan women in Rwanda & Ghana to create a range of handcrafted products that bring beauty into the world through modern design, time-honored techniques, and genuine artisan skill. We believe that education is the key to long-term empowerment and social change. That’s why we provide artisan women & young people in Africa with the training they need to build and sustain independent livelihoods. We are dedicated to changing that by investing 100% of our profits into education programs for the women who handcraft our products and youth in their communities. Since 2007, we've provided over 1,100 artisans and 250 young people in Rwanda & Ghana with employment opportunities, entrepreneurship training, and consistent access to the global export market.
