*Fawn Organics sells Enkiteng Bags through the Seeds to Sew program. Seeds to Sew works with local Kenyan women and girls to empower them with basic sewing and business skills. They provide girls with the opportunity to bead bracelets and make other products as a way to pay for school fees and school-related expenses. The products their participants create, such as the Enkiteng bags, are then sold domestically. All proceeds are returned to the women and girls in the programs. As a result, they can pay for school fees, medical care, and food for their families.
”Enkiteng” means “cow” in the Maasai language. Since the Maasai community is the first community where Seeds to Sew launched the sewing program, they think the name is fitting! A cow symbolizes freedom, wealth, and power in this community. Cows are valued as being the most giving animal as they provide milk on a daily basis, and meat in times of need. Also, cows are the dowry that is paid by a groom’s family for a girl’s hand in marriage.
