Buy Products of Namibia

Do you fancy original accessories or unconventional presents? Then come to the Lucerna cinema café (cloakroom) on 8-17 March 2011 (see opening hours below) and buy products of Namibia!

You can get traditional products made by the Nama and the Bushmen – cloth toys and dolls, embroidered and printed decorations (aprons, tablecloths and placemats) – or bags, handbags, ostrich shell jewellery and beads made by the sheltered workshop employees; or recycled tea-bag bookmarks and greeting cards from the new collection.

Established by the People in Need organisation in 2004, the sheltered workshop employs approximately 35 persons (in particular women), enabling them to earn basic income for themselves and their families. The products are sold in Namibia and the Czech Republic, whereas the proceeds from the sale return back to the workshop. By purchasing any product, you give poor African women work and opportunity to earn income in the sheltered workshop.

For more information on the workshop and products, please visit or login to Facebook and get the latest workshop news.
