Martha Nyamata created the lovely fruit basket on this tote bag. The 15" x 15" tote is made of brown duck canvas with multicolor batik lining that echoes the colors of the tapestry. It has two zippered pockets--one exterior and one interior--and a closure flap with twist-turn lock.
Martha lives in southern Uganda, in the diocese of Ruwenzori close to the Rwandan border – a particularly beautiful area known as the “Switzerland” of Uganda. Her life revolves around caring for her family and her crops. She meets weekly with her fellow needle workers.
Martha will use the funds she receives from her needlework to provide education for her children; medical support for herself and her family; seeds or fertilizer for her crops; maintenance and repairs to her home.
