    Blanket Making Kwera Weavers, Moshe, Tanzania

    Awesome engineering!



    This is the business in Moshe that is hand making all the blankets that CS'rs purchased.

    The great camera and editing skills were done by Bente's nephew.

    Sure are.
    Are you thinking of moving to Mt Kilimanjaro and growing coffee?

    ...see the few "blanket project" threads in the FairCrack forum
    FairCrack Projects
    ...it will make more sense then.

    We are looking at getting some here for sale (which I think was what you were thinking) but that won't be for a while, making blankets for the villages is the priority, having some here can take a back seat till they "catch up" with production.

    Got it. Very worthy project, just needed to remove the affluent consumer goggles.
