I never leave home in winter without a small tin of Mamaa’s shea butter - it keeps my lips moist and soft. Ahh, and I have received most compliments on the earrings sold to improve the lot of Syrian refugee women.

The best way to support women in Africa is to buy their products. I love Mamaa Trade´s baskets, they look nice and are carefully made.

I love the crafts from Afghanistan - beautiful bags and teddy bears! Amazing quality of embroidery! And good to know that it supports the women in that war torn region.

Behind Your Product

The most positive thing about the enterprise is that I can support my family with my creativity. Before, I never imagined I could make something creative with my hands. We have to communicate a lot with each other to do the work, to make sure we know exactly what the order is and how we can achieve excellent quality. We must love each other in this, to be producing good quality work.

I’m very grateful of the opportunity to sell baskets to customers in Canada. In our local market the price of baskets is only half of what I get from Mamaa Trade. Making baskets is the only way of feeding my family. Before there were days when we did not have anything to eat. Now those days are gone.
