Indego Africa partners with groups of artisan women in Rwanda & Ghana to deliver a range of handcrafted goods. They provide women and youth in these communities with the training they need to build and sustain independent livelihoods.

The artisan sector is the second largest employer in the developing world. Yet the majority of artisans are women who lack access to export markets, business skills, and the financial tools needed to run successful, global enterprises.

We are dedicated to changing that by investing 100% of our profits into education programs for the women who handcraft our products and youth in their communities. Since 2007, we've provided over 1,100 artisans and 250 young people in Rwanda & Ghana with employment opportunities, entrepreneurship training, and consistent access to the global export market.

That's Impact.

Sustainable Impact

We’re carving out an ethical space for artisans in the retail industry and creating a more sustainable world for all.

Indego is here to stay. We reduce waste in our production process by using recycled (and upcycled) materials, repurposed fabric scraps, and other salvaged textiles across our product lines, we schedule large batch cargo shipments from Africa to New York in order to reduce our carbon footprint, and we pay our partners fair, consistent wages for their work. On average, our partners earn 40% of the wholesale price of our items, vs. 5-10% in traditional retail. That’s enduring impact.
