A quiet little town on the banks of the Niger River, Segou is known as the capital of mud cloth. Textile designer Boubacar Doumbia built his workshop there 16 years ago, named it Ndomo - which means "the quest for knowledge" in local Bambara language, and welcomed young people who had no opportunity to receive formal education into his collective.
Itza Wood was founded in the largest remaining tropical forest of Central America,
the Petén Jungle in Guatemala. With skilled carpenters handcrafting wares from
exotic woods exclusively from the region, Itza Wood has encouraged and
empowered local families to establish sustainable businesses, to continue the
pursuit of education, and to join their efforts in reforestation.
