Shanga was founded in 2007 when the local resident, Saskia Rechsteiner, made a handful of fabric necklaces for a Christmas Fair in Arusha, Tanzania. Combining local fabric with some beads and her sons’ marbles, she created a unique necklace that sold out within hours. The days after the fair were busy – orders for the necklaces came in from safari companies, gift shops and even people who wanted to export them to Japan and Australia.
Saskia saw an opportunity to generate extra income for a local deaf lady she knew and together they started producing the necklaces to sell from Saskia’s backyard. Demand for the necklace grew and soon the first Shanga Workshop was established. The Shanga range of products was expanded, utilizing recycled and sustainable materials where possible, and the project was opened for people to come and meet the inspiring disabled staff and purchase products on site.
Over the years Shanga has grown to employ more than 70 people with a wide range of disabilities to make creative products including weaving, glass blowing beading, papermaking, and metalwork, using recycled materials wherever possible.
Shanga has welcomed many happy visitors and become an institution in Arusha. Some of our highlights are seeing Amal Clooney wearing our Amal necklace in the international news and a visit from Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.
In 2017 Shanga was acquired by Elewana and our workshop and store are now hosted at the beautiful Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge. Our staff is so pleased to have such a beautiful and safe working space and we are thrilled to have the incredible Elewana CSR support for our project and foundation.
Did you know… ‘Shanga’ is the Swahili word for a bead!
HD Backgrounds Philosophy
Throughout Shanga’s colorful journey, the heart and message of Shanga have remained the same – Be kind and recycle.
Of utmost importance is providing a safe, consistent and loving environment for Tanzanians with disabilities who have so often faced terrible hardship in their lives. Of no less importance is making amazing products from discarded materials so that we can contribute positively to the Tanzanian environment while producing creative pieces that celebrate Tanzanian culture.
