Widow’s Might rugs

Socially aware organisation with beautiful rugs

We buy all of our rugs for our tent bathrooms from a lovely organization called Widow’s Might. This project is based in Arusha, Tanzania and empowers a small group of women to learn skills that enable them to sell the handcrafted items they make to tourists and locals. With the support of the tourist and locals, they are able to provide for their families (many of whom are Widow’s or have no other support) and nurture their skills in both their craft and their ability to represent themselves in this small business they are learning to manage. They make rugs, scarves, runners, place mats, tote bags, back packs and quilted bags.
