About Ethnic Supplies
Ethnic Supplies specialises in African fashion and accessories including handmade bags, art and crafts from East Africa.
In many African countries women are still marginalized, excluded from education and formal employment but retain responsibilities for ensuring that the family is clothed and fed.
Aims of Ethnic Supplies
Ethnic Supplies was formed to promote independence for East African women who are involved in textile and handicraft production.
We work very closely with our producers to bring you the customer the very best handmade handicrafts and fashion accessories created using natural materials and methods. The women we work with are almost always excluded from any form of employment and this is their only source of income, so buying our products provides valuable income to these women.
Do you have fashion experience? Can you help?
Many of the african women do not have experience of Western fashions and could do with some help to adapt their crafts to be suitable for the European market. If you feel you could help in any way, please contact Ida Horner by email or phone (contact details above).
