August 25, 2015

Dsenyo works with over 70 women and artisans in Malawi, Africa crafting handmade gift items celebrating African textile design. We are a social enterprise and are members of the Fair Trade Federation. We believe that by helping connect creative, industrious people in Malawi to a viable market, we can all fight poverty together.


TAFA Profile


I've been working with the arts and craft world in many capacities since 1988. Handmade textiles have been my core focus since launching TAFA in 2010.

My hope is to contribute to the economic development potential the arts bring to the world, along with the intrinsic beauty shown in the work. May the world become a friendlier place for artists and nature!

Arrived in Kentucky after a childhood in Brazil, college in Minnesota and 20 years in Chicago. It's been a ride!
