Twiyubake launches woven bracelets line

Jun '10
Indego Africa is proud to announce that its newest partner cooperative, Twiyubake Family (“Twiyubake”), has launched a line of woven bracelets at Polo Ralph Lauren! The bracelets are hand-crafted from banana leaves and are available in three styles: straw, caramel, and mixed.

When designer Vincent Martinelli initially approached Twiyubake about the order, the women were hesitant. They had never made this type of product, and they had never produced a custom order for a large retailer. The timeline was short and the pressure was on, but with the invaluable help of superstar Indego Africa employees Valens Rutazihana, Sarah Dunigan, and Ellie Kates, the women of Twiyubake completed the order on time and with perfect quality!

Located in the Kayonza District of Rwanda, and faced with the most difficult of circumstances, including the loss of multiple family members in the 1994 Genocide, these 39 master weavers are determined to lift themselves out of poverty with spirit and dignity. With new confidence from their Polo Ralph Lauren success and news skills gained from Indego Africa's Literacy and Financial Management training programs, there's no stopping them!
