Lettermade is excited to partner with Indego Africa on two exclusive placemat designs! Practicing a time-honored Rwandan weaving technique, the artisans use a needle and thread to wrap hand-dyed strands of sisal (the inside fibers of an agave plant) around bunches of sweetgrass to create tightly coiled, durable placemats.

Indego Africa believes education is the key to long-term empowerment and social change. They provide artisan women and young people in Rwanda & Ghana with the training they need to build and sustain independent livelihoods.
