Our workshop was very busy during the covid outbreak in Tanzania. We produced over 3000 masks as well as coveralls, aprons and boot covers that were used to keep health care workers safe. We were also lucky enough to donate 500 masks to our local health centres. Our tailors were amazing and through trial and error came up with the “gold” mask design, triple cotton, trifold so you can adjust size, and elastic tying ribbons.

We are proud to produce quality cloth pads which provide a solution to period poverty in Tanzania. Young girls miss a lot of school days because they don’t have access to pads during their periods. We provide a solution that gives girls dignity and allows them to stay in school. Not only school girls benefit from the pads, but women as well; some prefer cloth, and many can’t afford to purchase pads every month.
We are now proud to offer two style of cloth pads, the Days for Girls, as well as our own design!
These are made with PUL, cotton, and soft and absorbent cotton flannel. These are designed to be easy to wash and more importantly, to dry quickly!
A kit comes with 2 panty liners, 6 everyday pads, and 2 overnight pads. It also comes with a waterproof wet bag, and a ziplock wash bag.
Essential Oils now available in TZ!
Essential oils are distilled from plants and are highly pure and concentrated. They have many uses that can be cosmetic, medicinal, and antimicrobial. These amazing healing oils are non diluted, have no additives, and smell delicious!
Living in Tanzania I have always found it challenging to find essential oils when I need them. While these are made in Tanzania we are now importing and distributing top quality, undiluted essential oils.
