ARTISANS & VALUES
Located in the Morogoro region of Tanzania you will find the vibrant blue workshop of our fantastic women weavers.
Founded in 1983 to help impoverished female school leavers in rural areas of Tanzania where higher education for girls is typically not a high priority, The Women Weavers Association comprises a school to train the weavers, a loom production unit to build the essential equipment, a dying unit to produce the dye for the yarn, and a shop where the products are sold.

Our Tanzanian throws and table cloths are made using 100% Tanzanian cotton. They can be machine washed on your coolest cycle (30 degrees and below). The cotton will become softer with every wash. Due to the nature of the weave you'll need to be careful when machine washing them. Always place them inside a delicates bag or pillowcase to avoid any snagging.
Always wash with similar colours and iron on a medium heat.
They are not suitable for tumble drying or dry cleaning, please leave your textiles to dry naturally.
Avoid placing them in direct sunlight as this may cause the dye to fade slightly.
