Shah is 24 years old and has been working for Neema Crafts for two years. He is profoundly deaf, but can sign in Swahili and he can also lipread. He is a member of our screen printing team. He must be very precise when printing so as not to smudge the ink or misalign the screen and ruin a whole new run of fabric. Shah also plays midfield for the Iringa Deaf Football team - which was set up by Neema Crafts.
Our handmade Animal print bunting is brightly coloured and lots of fun. It is an ideal decoration for a bedroom or playroom, and can be used indoors or outside to add a special touch to a party or occasion. The flags alternate between an african animal print which has been designed and screen printed by us, and a plain colour.
Our bunting can be used indoors and out but as it is made from 100% cotton fabric it will fade naturally if left out in bright sunlight and weather over time. To ensure it remains in perfect condition we would recommend it is not left permanently outdoors.
All our items are hand made by people with disabilities in Tanzania and all profit goes back to supporting them. You can read their stories at www.neemacrafts.com.
