A gorgeous range of sustainable hand made fashion accessories produced in this season’s popular tribal prints are now on sale in selected TK Maxx stores nationwide.
The accessories are part of an exciting initiative to provide income opportunities to disadvantaged communities in Uganda.
The bags, purses and aprons have been produced by a group of women in Gulu, Northern Uganda. They are made from 100 per cent cotton locally sourced using distinct modern and traditional African prints to create a collection of stylish statement accessories. Each item has been personally signed by the woman who has made it and will help change not only her life but also help achieve long term improvement to the lives of their families and communities.
The bags can be found in store under the brand One Mango tree. The purses are priced at £3.99, the bags are £7.99 and the aprons are £5.99.
“This is part of an exciting initiative we have taken to help improve the lives of disadvantaged communities in Uganda. By promoting trade, providing skills and employment, we hope to be able to make a real difference to their lives and at the same time provide our customers with some beautiful unique products” said Jo Murphy Head of Corporate Social Responsibility, TJX Europe.
TK Maxx has been working in Uganda with Save the Children since 2008 to provide education facilities to more than 10,000 children.
