Momma Teo - Uganda
Placemats & Table Runners ~ Employs 10 women
Momma Teo and her team of ten weavers create the vibrant runners and placemats you’ll find in our tabletop section. Using traditional handlooms, each piece requires the individual threads to be hand-fed through 300 metal ‘teeth’ before weaving can begin. This first step takes a full day.
As a widow caring for several children, Momma Teo believes it is important to empower women in her community with skills to earn income, be independent and provide for their children.
