From local, raw materials to handcrafted, finished products - they're supporting the integrity of artisan-made goods and creating opportunities for the women who make them.
We believe that education is the key to long-term empowerment and social change. That’s why we provide artisan women & young people in Africa with the training they need to build and sustain independent livelihoods.
Products and environmental impact
We’re carving out an ethical space for artisans in the retail industry and creating a more sustainable world for all.
We partner with groups of artisan women in Rwanda & Ghana to create a range of handcrafted products that bring beauty into the world through modern design, time-honored techniques, and genuine artisan skill.
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.
