Strips of paper carefully rolled up, dyed, dried, and then strung to create the beautiful Cascadia Necklace.
Patti, our Widows Program Coordinator in Uganda, tells us that in order to get the bright pigmented color onto the paper beads, that the widows must dip the beads into the dye of their choice and let it dry seven individual times. The women string up clothing lines all around their villages and hang the paper beads to dry.
What a detailed process for these incredible necklaces!
The last time we got these in, they sold out in two days! Hurry and get one while they are here.
Dress for success in this statement piece. The Kampala is a versatile product! Some wear it as a necklace, or belt, while others use it as a scarf! You can't go wrong with this piece.
Some of the Kampalas will come with a note attached from the widow who made it!
Be on the lookout when you unbox it.
New from the widows in Uganda are these Large Paper Wrapped Bowls. Using scraps of paper, the women carefully craft it into a beautiful work of art.
