An African Fair Trade Boutique in Washington, DC

Reduce, Reuse, & Up-cycle!

Resourcefulness is a way of life in Africa. At Amani, it’s no different. We looked around the shop this morning and realized there was a whole collection of creatively up-cycled products to show off.

From quilts pieces with second-hand clothes to bowls twisted from scraps to computer cases dressing up with cement bags, reclaimed materials are having their day in the sun.

    That’s so awesome! I love seeing what other people make from upcycled/recycled materials. It’s always inspirational to me!
