Wendy’s suppliers are all carefully vetted, with relationships developed over years to ensure the utmost quality and authenticity.
Wendy is passionate about empowering women, especially those in impoverished communities, by giving them an opportunity to sell the products they create and thereby generating purpose, pride and an income. The crafts at Maiden Africa are often these women’s only source of income and help to sustain their cultural identity. This is especially true of the grass baskets.
