What We Do Indego Africa is design-driven social enterprise that partners with women-owned artisan cooperatives in Rwanda to create jewelry, accessories, apparel, and home dĂŠcor. Indego Africa drives forward a sustainable solution to systemic poverty in Africa by paying fair trade wages and providing women the tools for long-term business success.

Connection to Artisans Indego Africa’s designs inspire consumers to feel connected to the story of the women who made their product. All Indego Africa products come with a tag signed personally by the artisan who created it, offering you a chance to better know one of these creative, entrepreneurial women.


Fair Trade Practices Indego Africa pays its artisan partners in Rwanda a fair trade wage with 100% of Indego Africa’s profits used to administer training programs in business, literacy and technology for these same women. Indego Africa strives to empower its partners with skills, information, and confidence.

Our Partners Indego Africa partners with more than 400 women in Rwanda working at seven for-profit cooperatives:

Cocoki (textiles) Covanya (weaving) Twiyubake (weaving) Abasangiye (textiles) Imirasire (weaving) Ejo Hazaza (beading) Ingenzi Knit Union (knitwear)
