Behind the Design: Meet Saha. Her name means “fortunate” in Dagbani, the dialect spoken in Tamale, Ghana where Saha was made. Hand-stitched (and named) by the young women of Tibehgu Taaya Cooperative, Saha represents women’s empowerment and success. Her ikat dress is made from hand-loomed, organic cotton sourced in Burkina Faso. She wears a tiny anklet of cowrie shells symbolizing destiny, prosperity, and strength. The cowrie shell was considered particularly valuable by various tribes in West Africa who used the shell as a form of currency until the early 20th century. The shells were so treasured that Ghana named its current currency (the “cedi”) after these marine mollusks. Saha also carries a playful mini basket handwoven from locally-harvested sisal in Rwanda for all of her tiny treasures. Because what Indego doll would be complete without a basket?

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.
