Uganda_baskets_in_a_row.jpgHub buyer missions are yielding positive results. The vibrantly colored baskets of Uganda Crafts 2000 are now available for purchase on the World Market Cost Plus website, see above. Buy a Uganda Crafts 2000 basket here.

World Market is a billion dollar division of Bed Bath & Beyond, the popular U.S. retail chain. In March 2016, the Hub seized on World Market's desire to diversify by introducing them to talented home decor and accessories producers in Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda. The buyers met 12 Hub-curated, export-ready vendors and witnessed production at five companies. The result: greater sales and exposure for talented East African businesses and beautiful, handmade products for U.S. buyers.
