QASA QASA - SUSTAINABILITY
Contemporary East African design
The company explores the diverse skills of artisans in East Africa. All products are handcrafted from local materials, taking ethical production and fair wages into account. To this end, the company cooperates with local artists, communities and NGOs. Each product therefore has its own story.
Local and fair materials
The materials range from local wood, African cotton and Eri silk to local grasses. Glass containers are made from old wine bottles and the horn used is a by-product of the food industry. The textiles are produced by a certified fair trade organization in Ethiopia. The materials are processed by hand and are free from harmful substances, artificial colors and bleaching agents.
Support and promotion of communities
Under "Meet the Makers", you can get to know the sponsored artists and communities directly. The partner NGOs also support refugee women in Tanzania and groups of people with disabilities in Rwanda. Last but not least, the company donates around a monthly profit to various charities every year.
