Ashlee: on amani and the importance of buying handmade

Amani ya Juu’s center in Liberia recently had a visit from our country director’s sister and friend, Ashlee. Ashlee runs a wonderful blog, Where my Heart Resides, and recently created a beautiful post about Amani Liberia seamstresses, buying ethically, and our stunning products.

We’ve posted her lovely photos below, and you can read her blog post, “on amani and the importance of buying handmade”, here.
