Amias means "beautiful" in the language of the Barabaig, a nomadic tribe in central Tanzania. Over the past year, we have mobilized over 100 Barabaig men and women to design jewelry and handbags inspired by traditional fashion. The goal of the project is to uplift traditional culture, generate significant income for disadvantaged communities, and to provide educational opportunities to its members.

As a result of the fair trade opportunities created through Amias, many families have had ample food to eat during the drought, sent their children to school, increased their livestock and are making plans for the future. When wearing the jewelry or handbags, you are wearing hope, the story of the Barabaig, and something beautiful.
