These elegant bottle stoppers are created using handblown recycled glass and aluminium, designed and produced by local artisans in Arusha, Tanzania.
Each item is unique.
'Shanga,' the Swahili word for 'bead,' is a successful social enterprise in Tanzania, which employs people with disabilities to create distinctive, high quality, handmade jewellery, glassware and homeware using recycled materials.
The Shanga family is a unique group of talented and inspiriting individuals, many of whom have faced extreme hardship and rejection in their lives. By seeing ability over disability, Shanga is committed to helping people gain confidence and independence through employment, and tackling fear and prejudice in the community.
