Karama Collection | Rustic Heart Ornament

Karama Collection | Rustic Heart Ornament



Each unique piece is hand-carved from the recycled wood of a retired dhow boat. These boats have sailed the Indian Ocean for centuries and are still a part of the fishermen’s daily life in Tanzania. Decorate your home with a piece of history while giving dignity and purposeful work to families in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.


Karama began in 2006 with a single artisan partner in Ethiopia and has since expanded to working with artisans in 6 countries, affecting over 2,400 artisans and their families in this time period. Each purchase provides layers of transformation, yielding individual, community, economic and eternal impact.

We exist to end poverty. We partner with small business owners in Africa + Haiti to create and purchase beautiful, handmade products. You share dignified work with every purchase, while allowing us to create individual, economic, social, and spiritual impact. Proceeds from our sales are reinvested in Young Life in Africa + Haiti.
