Ingwe Beaded Textile
Indego Africa’s Ingwe Collection is bursting with bright textures, pops of neon, and geometric patterns. The collection puts a bold, modern twist on traditional African weaving by pairing locally-sourced, natural materials with acrylic details and contrasting shapes.
Behind the Design: Our hand-beaded products are crafted with delicate detail by our artisan partners in Rwanda who stitch glass and locally-sourced beads onto handwoven vases, baskets, and bucket bags using a needle and thread. Historically Rwandan Kings wore beaded crowns as symbols of their wealth and prosperity. Now a tradition in villages across Rwanda, the beading process can span more than a month of incredibly precise and patient handwork. Small batch production means no two beaded Indego pieces are exactly the same.

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.
