Maadili Collective fosters partnerships with small-scale artisan communities where opportunities are limited or non-existent in order to promote economic freedom and stability. Formed in 2018, Maadili Collective works directly with Ugandan and Zambian artisans to co-create ethically produced and sustainably sourced baskets, home decor items and jewelry. We wholeheartedly believe that business has momentum to transform lives.
Maadili Collective is a local Asheville, woman-owned business. All products are designed locally and hand made by fair trade artisans in Uganda and Zambia through a collaborative, co-creative process. We believe that buying Fair Trade is buying locally in a country where people have little access to markets.
