Ubuntu, a non-profit organization that works with women entrepreneurs in India, South Africa, Rwanda, Uganda and the US, recently partnered with iconic South African fashion designer Marianne Fassler to develop an exclusive line of children’s clothing. Fassler was able to bring her unique style to Ubuntu, integrating traditional African clothing in modern shapes (the dress above is a perfect example. I want it!). The result is a collection of African wax print skirts and dresses that are absolutely beautiful.
The dresses and skirts are handmade at the Soshanguve Baobab Workspace in South Africa. Each purchase helps women-members of Ubuntu gain skills, confidence, and is a pathway to help them rise above poverty. With each piece that you buy, you are helping a woman on her journey to successful entrepreneurship View the collection and support the work of women from around the globe at Ubuntu Bazaar >
