Crafted from scraps of colorful traditional cotton kitenge cloth, these sweet lion ornaments are created by Betty & 4 other local women in Kampala, Uganda. Kitenge cloth is a wardrobe staple in East Africa, similar to a sarong, often worn by women and wrapped around the chest or waist, over the head as a headscarf, or as a baby sling.

Betty has been producing hand-stitched dolls for 10 years now. Based in Uganda, she was inspired by a friend and set off to start her own production line. Betty now works with four other women in her home in Kampala to create beautiful decor items using kitenge cloth.
