The Friday Rwanda update
On Friday I had quite a different day than what I am used to, which is going to coffee farms. I was lucky enough to go visit the two suppliers of our Rwanda art merchandise that we have in the stores. It was an incredible experience to hear the amazing stories of struggle and now success of many of the master seamstress and weavers. The fabrics produced for our bags was the first time ever full container load of manufactured product in Rwanda to be exported to the United States. Up to now only products like coffee had been exported in full container loads. Once again as it is with coffee farmers, successful business is a result of human spirit.
