Hi, Ida,
What beautiful handicrafts you have to offer on your website! I love the idea of your website, what a great way to help the women of Africa! My company, Trivani, will be doing something similar in the near future with the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico- just imagine how many people we both will be helping with the sale of their gorgeous items, I love that!
