The purpose of our UMOJA ZIPPY Bag is to partner together to fundraise for the purchase a little ZIPPY vehicle for our Tanzanian fabric store and team.
We can’t avoid the enormous Covid-19 problem in Tanzania, but we can enable our team to social distance as much as they can by travelling in safety off public transport. A vehicle for our team and our store will give effective transport of our volumes of fabrics, and enable the efficiency of movement, for customer deliveries and to get inside away from the monsoon rains and burning heat.
Bags represent transport and movement, and come with us wherever we go.
Our ZIPPY bags are handmade in Melbourne in partnership, from batiki fabric handmade in rural Tanzania and directly traded from our Dar es Salaam store. They are the fusion of two handcrafted batiki fabrics, to represent us working in partnership. Our epic new collection of MIA MOJA  bags are a showcase of our incredible East African fabric collection, and 100% of your purchase will give momentum in incredibly practical ways to our team and our work both in our fabric store, and as we work with a network of artisans in Tanzania, sourcing and transporting products for our Marketplace from throughout East Africa and received via our Tanzanian team.
ZIPPY Bags measure 25 cm wide and 22cm high.
Bag is lined in batiki fabric, and features a YKK metal zipper.
Cold gentle machine wash or cold hand wash.
Warm iron, avoiding zipper and tag.
If you are thankful for your car, and for the ease of transport it has given your life, we invite you to invest in this very important transport project.
