We’re thrilled to have received a VERY generous donation of beautiful organic hemp, bamboo and silk/tensel fabric from Nerissa and family at Draper’s Organic.

They’ve given us given us meters and meters of their lush organic fabric – lots of which is already winging it’s way to Kampala to be made into wonderful new items for our shop.

Hemp is one of the most ecologically friendly fabrics – it is a renewable, biodegradable resource that grows well without pesticides, herbicides or fungicides and has a deep root system that helps to prevent soil erosion, whilst removing toxins and aerating the soil to the benefit of future crops.

It’s also naturally UV resistant and wonderfully soft. 

We’re so thrilled – all this fabric will be used to make products by our women’s groups in Kampala and sold to raise money to support orphaned and vulnerable children through primary school and train women in skills they need to feed their families. Can’t wait to show you all our new handmade goodies soon.
