Spice Route Collection
The enchanting trail of the Spice Route collection transports us to Zanzibar, with its colorful fabrics and patterns. The beautiful collection from Upendo comes in both kanga, a traditional bright color starched cotton, worn by women all around Africa and in kikoi, a traditional soft hand-woven cotton from Zanzibar, worn on very special events, like weddings. The playfulness of the designs reminds us of the endless games of scents and color of the spice markets of Zanzibar. Upendo not only supports the education and empowerment of women through its stitching and literacy school, they also promote interfaith understanding among those women, changing mindsets one woman, one family at a time.
