The pace at Shanga is slightly slower in January, which gives us time to experiment, play, prototype, train and make some new products especially in the glass department.
Sneak peek at some of the new designs at the workshop...
New year, new things and some of these are already my favourites.
A visit to Shanga is a must when passing through Arusha to meet the people and see all the beautiful products they make with love and dedication.
Shanga’s purpose-built, open workshop is located in the grounds of Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge and is a wonderful experience for visitors to meet the inspirational staff, to view and participate in the creative process behind Shanga products.
Shanga is a successful social enterprise which employs people with disabilities to create unique, high quality and handmade jewelry, glassware and homewares, incorporating recycled materials into many of our products. Shanga products are sold in Tanzania and around the world, with all profits being reinvested back into the development of new products; researching and implementing additional recycling methods into our activities.
