In a post-genocide environment Willa Shalit spearheaded the Path to Peace project which developed an American market for Rwandan women’s crafts. The collection creates trade partnerships with artisans in recovering regions to bring the power of change to Africa and Indonesia.

In less than two years the project has achieved unparalleled success in bringing economic security to the women of Rwanda. Their are several items including bracelets ( O Bracelet and Sister bracelet), necklacesbaskets (which are the number one export out of Rwanda under the African Growth an Opportunity Act) and bowls.

Check out the entire Rwanda Path to Peace collection only at Macy’s!

    Love your post on the O Bracelets and baskets. We also work on this campaign and I can tell you the bracelets are stunning. But here is what makes them really meaningful. Each bracelet is signed by the woman in Rwanda who made the disc.
