Description + Story

Lion’s Thread partners with 7 talented women artisans in Iganga, Uganda to handcraft bow ties and neck ties out of African textiles, which are then sold in Western markets. Proceeds generated go to support programs for the individuals on our team, with the goal of empowering these women who strive to be fiscally independent, socially responsible and creatively bold to generate change themselves.

Additionally, the women developed a program where Lion’s Thread artisans sell bow ties to tourist markets in Uganda, pooling all profits earned into a community endowment, which they utilize for school fees and emergency medical expenses. It has since evolved into a social incubator, seeking to raise enough seed capital to launch a local venture, creating lasting change in Iganga.
