Fodor's Review

When you shop here, you won’t only be buying lovely handmade things such as bags, hats, jewelry, bead and metal work, hammocks, carvings and handcrafted furniture, but you’ll also be helping to support over 60 local families, who, when fishing yields dramatically declined because of netting and trawling, learned to create unique and sustainable fair trade crafts. Sandy and Snowy Somerville, who lived in the village of Macunhe, 15 miles (25 km) north of Vilankulo, started the community uplift enterprise in 2002, training the local people, and giving them tools, raw materials, and design ideas. You’ll find it hard to go away empty handed.
