Vikapu Bomba (VB) is a social enterprise working with previously unemployed rural women artisans who produces hand-woven fashion and home décor articles in the communities of Iringa-Tanzania. VB products are made from a local reed grass called Milulu that grows along streams in the southern highlands of Tanzania. For generations weaving had been traditionally practiced but was abandoned by many due to lack of opportunities and market. VB believes that apart from being fair, trade should also be transparent and personal. That’s why each of our products comes with a label featuring each producer’s portrait and short story which keeps each product fully traceable.
