The children of our weavers in Ghana have little to no access to school supplies like notebooks, paper, pencils, erasers and other basics that children on our side of the world have access to before they are even out of their mother's belly.
After visiting Ghana and the weavers that make our products, the entire core of our business model changed. My initial purpose for this visit was to formally meet the people who produce our Victoria Baskets. I had no idea that I was about to encounter a level of poverty that took me 100 years back in time.
Since I began this business I always said I was creating something that helped people in a very important way. I always knew that my business would do this. But after my visit to Ghana, now I really KNOW.
