Global Mamas employs women in Ghana and helps them become entrepreneurs. Each Mama has a workshop space where they create fabrics for clothing and home products. They use an ancient technique called Batik.

During the batik process, the Mamas stamp hot wax onto fabric, and then dye the fabric. After dyeing, the batik wax is removed, revealing differently colored patterns and designs. Cracks in the batik wax give patterns the “crackled” look so unique to batik.

People Behind the Brand: Meet the Mamas

Mission

To create a life of prosperity for African women and their families. We define prosperity as financial well-being, good health, and happiness. We achieve prosperity by creating and selling handmade products of the highest quality.

Impact

Global Mamas began with just 6 women and has grown to more than 500.  The business model works by training women to become Mamas and then each Mama employs other women in her community.  On average the Mamas earn 75% more than the minimum wage in Ghana which allows them to re-invest their earnings in the local community for education, food and healthcare.
