Africa Bags is supporting the Jasmine Company by helping to sell these beautiful hand crafted necklaces from Ethiopia.
“Addis Heywet” is an Ethiopian term meaning “New Life.” It reflects the new hope of a community of formerly displaced people who lived in plastic bag shelters along the streets of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Jasmine Company created a Women’s Co-op to help provide these formerly displaced ladies with a sustainable income. This necklace is the unique creation of one of the women within this women’s income co-op. The income from the sales of these beautiful pieces of art are feeding the women and their families. All proceeds from the sale of this necklace are returned directly to the artists in Ethiopia. One necklace enables a woman to provide for her family for one week!
