Cards from Africa
Kigali / Rwanda / Africa
Cards from Africa are made by hand in Rwanda and help orphans affected by AIDS and genocide improve their quality of life through fair wages and mentoring.
Their high quality cards start with local Rwandan office scrap paper. Then, without chemicals and using the traditional African method of making paper, they create various textures using natural products found in the wide open spaces surrounding their workspace. These products include: bougainvillea petals, Umunyinya (similar to pine needles), reflective mica rock flakes, and the imprint of woven grass mats.
