ZUBA Africa Tote Bags

ZUBA Africa Tote Bags are hand-made by women in Rwanda and sold in the U.S. "ZUBA Africa is a collaboration between Linda Trau, a designer and humanitarian, and Freewinds Trading, a company that uses business as a strategy for the economic empowerment of women in developing countries. ZUBA Africa, inspired by 'izuba,' the Rwandan word for sunshine, seeks to make a lasting difference in Rwandan communities by collaborating with skilled artisans of local cooperatives. ZUBA Africa's launch in 2010 brought these artisans' unique, handcrafted jewelry and bags to the wider world." The tote bags are available in a variety of beautiful prints and are so affordable!
