5 ways to make your wedding fair trade
Amani ya Juu is bringing peace, reconciliation, & dignity to the lives of African women. The jewelry, home goods, clothing, purses, accessories, and other items they produce don’t just look beautiful—they tell a beautiful story. Amani operates on a relatively small budget, & we rely upon passionate customers to spread the word about our work. Consider incorporating Amani products into your wedding in these clever ways!
1) Register at amaniafrica.org
Introduce your guests to Amani AND snag all of the lovely home and kitchen goodies you’ve been eyeing. Every home needs a touch of African flair!
2) Wear Amani to your engagement shoot.
Your engagement photos tell a special story. Why not tell the Amani story, too! Bonus points for mentioning amaniafrica.org when you post them on social media!
3) Use Amani decor for the reception.
Display handmade African napkin rings at the tables. Deck the reception hall with hand-stitched flag garlands from Uganda.
4) Give Amani as thank you gifts for hostesses.
Did some wonderful ladies throw you a shower? Thank them with a gift that gives back. Be sure to tell the recipient to check the tag to find out who made it!
5) Send Amani thank you cards.
The wedding is over, you’ve returned from honeymooning, and a pile of gifts are in the living room. Send a thoughtful response to each giver with a recycled card from Africa!
6) Get crafty with Amani.
When you order jewelry at amaniafrica.org, jewelry comes in a cute little fabric gift bag. If you or a friend is feeling crafty, two jewelry bags can easily become a garter for your wedding day!
7) Decorate Bridesmaid gifts with Amani.
