Fabric Bowls made by the DRC Women’s Community Project.

The DRC Women’s Community Project, in collaboration with Kubatsirana – Helping Hands NGO in Swakopmund, is offering a stunning collection of handmade bowls made from the fabric of the traditional Oshiwambo dress.

The Oshiwambo dress holds great cultural and social importance among the Oshiwambo community in Namibia. Women adorn themselves with these colorful dresses during special occasions and ceremonies, such as weddings, initiation rites, and community celebrations. The dress symbolizes not only beauty and femininity but also serves as a proud testament to their rich cultural heritage.

The talented artisans of the DRC Women’s Community Project have skillfully transformed these vibrant fabrics into functional and decorative bowls. Each bowl is a unique piece of art, reflecting the intricate patterns and bold colors that define the Oshiwambo dress. The bowls serve as a tangible link between the past and the present, preserving the traditions and craftsmanship of the community.

By purchasing one of these exquisite bowls, you not only bring a touch of cultural heritage into your home but also contribute to the empowerment and economic independence of the women involved in the DRC Women’s Community Project. Every bowl tells a story, representing the resilience, creativity, and unity of the Oshiwambo people.
