Tribal Textiles

About Our Artisan Partner


Tribal Textiles is a Zambia-based social enterprise that works with more than 100 artisans, including women, indigenous populations, and individuals who have been diagnosed with HIV. Drawing inspiration from local wildlife and surroundings, artisans draw, sew, and paint designs by hand on locally sourced cotton. These villagers are local to the South Luangwa Valley area and often have small plots of land. In addition to their work at Tribal Textiles, they are managing their farms during the rainy season. Tribal Textiles empowers artisans with sustainable employment, a safe and supportive work environment, housing benefits, healthcare support, nutritious meals, and training opportunities. The social enterprise not only supports these artisans, it also supports the community at-large by co-funding a local school and supporting a local orphanage.
