My name is Fahari Wambura and I was born near Lake Victoria in Tanzania, a country in eastern Africa.  I moved to the United States with my husband, a Midwesterner whom I met in Dar Es Salaam through a close friend.  We have two sons, one who was born in Tanzania and the other in America.

I have always had a passion for people and crafts.  I’m drawn to culture and learning about why people make certain objects.  It is this passion that motivated me to open my own shop.  My hope is that I can share a little bit about where I come from, while supporting artisans and makers in Tanzania and Kenya.
