The New York Times recently ran a story on five incredible places to shop in and around Arusha, the safari hub in northern Tanzania. And one of their picks was Shanga, the nonprofit arts and crafts outlet at Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge.
Quotable quote: “A social enterprise and destination for design lovers, Shanga sells handicrafts made by Tanzanians with disabilities. These artisans produce an expansive range of goods such as drinking and wine glasses made with recycled colored glass, woven cotton shawls and place mats and decorative metal objects. Prices from $1.”
