Crafts and Culture of Tanzania and Kenya

Learn about the different products for sale in my shop, who makes them and their cultural significance.  I will also demonstrate the many uses for a “kanga cloth”, a multi-purpose Tanzanian fabric that can be used as a sling, shawl, scarf, sarong, tablecloth, head wrap, and more!  Take home a “kanga cloth” of your own!  (There’s an alternate take home gift for those under 12 years of age.)
