Baraka Bear


A group of women in Kibera Slums have formed a group, now becoming a small sewing business. Just recently I saw them trying out something new and so I bought one, in hopes of promoting this artistic group of women from the Resource Center for Slums! The make these little stuffed teeddy bears out of the tradition Kitange cloth. Each costs ten dollars and the bears would be great for little kids. I love mine. Im calling them “Baraka Bears” because baraka means blessing. Interested in buying a few or do you know of a store in the US that would be interested in buying in bulk? Let me know 🙂
