HANDMADE IN GHANA

Designed by Lindye Galloway, this beautiful elephant grass tray is the best way to display or organize your tabletop or counter goods.  The intricate design is elegant and neutral.  Style it as a centerpiece on your table top, coffee table, or living room ottoman - these trays are incredibly versatile and can be put to many uses.  The ideas are endless!

These sweet, textured trays were made by groups of women in small cooperatives across rural areas of Ghana in an ethical, fair trade environment.

Meaning & Purpose

Designer Lindye Galloway entered the world of design organically.  What started as a passion project evolved into a thriving interior design studio - and that personal empowerment is what KAZI stands for, making this partnership an easy decision.  Through partnering with entrepreneurial designers and artisans in rural Ghana, the sale of these products means supporting dreams alongside a fair wage and an opportunity for an artisan to provide for their family where few job opportunities exist. 

Kazi exists to create fair living wages, good working conditions and market access for artisans.  Some might call this “fair trade”, we call it good business. 

We are the first of 5 companies to receive the highly regarded Nest Seal. Every year we undergo an onsite audit in each country and with each cooperative to earn the right to mark our products with this important seal. 

When you see the Nest Seal you have the confidence to know products have been ethically handcrafted in a home or small workshop. This means fair wages are paid, good working conditions are provided, there are no children or forced labor in the workforce, materials are traced and fairly sourced and all aspects of the production and material processes (like dyeing) are in consideration of the environment and safe working environments.
