Support Where It Matters

20% of the revenues from the soon-to-be-released laptop sleeve collection will be donated to the Panzi hospital in eastern Congo where sexual violence is used as a weapon of war. A war over minerals that are needed to produce technology we use to communicate. The Panzi hospital calculated that $25 sends one child of a survivor to school. $50 provides a survivor with life-saving medicine. $100 supports a survivor seeking holistic care for one month.

Using Resources With Care

The cloth is handwoven using the fiber of the raffia palm. It grows in the replenishing abundance of the everflowing Sankuru river. Vegetable dyes, called tukula, are used to dye the raffia strands in a variety of earth tones. These hues are essential in the SHOOWA tribe’s concept of beauty.
