Already a favorite among many celebrities, Ma’mitons bags and sandals are eco-friendly and ethically made by artisans in Cameroon. Founded by Priscilla Njankou, Ma’mitons works with local artisans to create wearables from raffia leaves from tropical forests, and the proceeds from every bag sold help to feed a family for a month. Njankou, an American citizen with Cameroonian roots, launched the brand with the aim of connecting her culture to the rest of the world through fashion, crafting these natural yet stylish accessories using eco textiles.
