The Christmas Artisan Market in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania is the biggest exhibition of the year for Neema Crafts. Their workshops and designers pulled out all the stops to create new and exciting products for the season including their ever popular lampshades and lamp stands. Almost 50 boxes were packed to the brim and taken to Dar. Nearly all the stock was sold and despite having an eight-strong selling team they still had the crowds gathering and long queues of people desperate to buy their goods. The stall was popular with both expats and locals as well as people visiting from all over East Africa. The takings from the market exceeded all expectations and that means we can now buy houses for more of our disabled employees. Several of the items that were especially popular at the market are now available from our online shop with plans to increase lines on the website from Spring 2018. Heres hoping they include those colourful screen printed lampshades!
