Harriet Zaffoni founded Harkiss Designs to bring authentically African-made goods to North America. At the same time, she wanted to help the people of Uganda, especially women, achieve the same education, financial stability, and general well-being they'd be afforded in the United States. That means when someone buys a woven basket from Harkiss Designs, they aren't just getting a decorative object. They're supporting East African craftswomen who draw on their long heritage and traditions to hand-make these pieces.
The basket may be decorated to resemble the hills of the Rwandan countryside, or it be made the same way women in Uganda have created them for generations. Harkiss contracts with female and male crafters, many of whom are supporting their entire families, to create clothing, jewelry, and home goods in traditional ways. In addition to paying its artists, Harkiss also donates a portion of profits to Lend a Hand Uganda-USA, a charity benefiting children's education and health care.
