Make dinner time or any meal time exceptionally colorful with the Dinner with Ubushobozi Place Mats Kit! Featuring 4 place mats that are made with vibrant African wax fabrics, you can not only liven up the dinner table but also give back to a community in Rwanda, Africa. Ubushobozi is a women's cooperative that teaches young girls the skills they need to be successful and provide income for their families. Ubushobozi means power and ability. Purchasing this place mat kit helps benefit the Ubushobozi Collective.
This kit contains a pattern and Authentic African Prints by the Ubushobozi Women's Collective. The wax prints are a form of non-verbal communication among African women. Each print has meaning and they are used in many of their cultural celebrations and have become collectible.
The hand dyed cotton fabrics included in this kit are stiff due to the manufacturing process of the cloth. After you have made your project, machine wash it in cold water on gentle cycle and dry on a delicate setting or air dry. The fabrics will soften and the waxy sheen will dissipate.
