Dear Customer,
Panama is in total lockdown. No tourists, no sales, no food, no medicine. That is what is happening to the Kuna, Wounaan and Embera tribes in Panama. We have worked with them since 1990 and know they are desperate. Traderbrock, Molamagic and Molamadness will match all sales revenue and use it to purchase molas, tagua carvings and baskets until the crisis is over. We have church pastors and others that sell regularly to us via photos and payment through Western Union. The art is shipped through the mail. We have been doing this for years but now it is critical to help the poorest of the poor. Please share this message with your friends.

Estimado cliente,
Panamá está en un encierro total. Sin turistas, sin ventas, sin comida, sin medicinas. Eso es lo que les está pasando a las tribus Kuna, Woumaan y Embera en Panamá. Hemos trabajado con ellos desde 1990 y sabemos que están desesperados. Traderbrock, Molamagic y Molamadness igualarán todos los ingresos de ventas y lo utilizarán para comprar molas, tallas de tagua y cestas hasta que termine la crisis. Tenemos pastores de iglesias y otros que nos venden regularmente a través de fotos y pagos a través de Western Union. El arte se envía por correo. Hemos estado haciendo esto durante años, pero ahora es fundamental ayudar a los más pobres de los pobres. Por favor, comparta este mensaje con sus amigos.


Zambian hand-crafted Beautiful Shoulder Bag-Zambia 19092313mm

Regular price $39.99

 This shoulder bag measures about 30" from the top of the straps to the bottom. The storage area is about 14" x 14". It is fully adjustable by moving the knot. Plus it is reversible and has two pockets for cell phones, etc. 

Oh, you are going to be the pride of the boardwalk.  

Folks, this is more than a shoulder bag. It is made by the women of the First Presbyterian Church of Aiken SC. The church has been supporting the Mwandi Mission Hospital Project in Zambia since the 1990's. Like most sub-Saharan countries in Africa, Mwandi suffers from a high incidence of HIV/AIDS. 

Many infants are born to HIV-positive mothers. If these infants are HIV-negative at birth, they are placed on infant formula to prevent transfer of the HIV virus from the mother via breastfeeding. 

The missionaries of the church bring the materials back from Zambia and the women sew the shoulder bags. The colorful materials are the same materials the Zambian women use to make their skirts. I remember the materials from the days when I worked in Zambia and I have always admired the colors.     

Shipping is included within the USA.
