We welcome you to a world of hand-made, fair trade specialty gifts, including stone and wood carvings, baskets, jewelry, toys, musical instruments, coffee/tea, chocolate, and more.
Our new kind of gift/decor store offers an extraordinary range of merchandise for shoppers, and at the same time, provides hope and opportunity for impoverished artisans in developing countries.
Fair trade retailers are committed to social justice and supporting artisans in developing countries though fair wages, healthy working conditions, environmental sustainability, respect for cultural identity, and customer education. KIRABO, a Ugandan word for "gift," supports 15 different fair trade organizations, bringing in merchandise from over 30 countries. Shoppers can learn about the artisans while browsing though artful displays in a soothing atmosphere bathed in nature's colors. Purchases help empower the artisans to build a better life for themselves and their families.
