Rwanda Hand-Embroidery

Casa Branca proudly partners with an all-female atelier formed nearly 20 years ago to support handicapped women and victims of Genocide by providing dignity and companionship through work.

An intricate and artful process that is disappearing from workrooms worldwide, hand-embroidery is thriving in this Central African workshop. Based in the heart of Kigali, Rwanda's bustling capital city, craftswomen carry on the tradition of embroidery first brought to the country by Belgian nuns.

A hand-embroidered piece is unique not only in its subtle variations, but also in the time dedicated to its production. However small the object, it retains the spirit of attention to detail and the joy of process.
