KamiAmi has gone public!!!

Read about us, "The KamiAmi Women of Ghana," in the Summer 2010 issue of Fiberarts magazine. How proud we are!!

Our wallets are now available on-line at Global Mamas. To purchase one, visit For wholesale orders go to
Click on "Trashy Bags" in the "Recycled" category.

It has been an amazing journey and learning experience, for both the women and for me. They have learned (among many other things) that their time and their skills can help them support their families. The list of what I have learned is overwhelmingly long. It has been such a very special opportunity for me.

KamiAmi Women on their own...

The apron strings have been cut. Our dream, to provide a sustainable source of income for these women, may be a reality. Global Mamas are successfully marketing KamiAmi crocheted works. Visitors to Pokuase, working with WomensTrust, continue to buy KamiAmi bags. They are on their way.
