Employ, Educate And Empower With Jjangde's Hand Woven Home Goods And Reader Giveaway!

 It's with great pride that I share with you Jjangde, a company that is dedicated to strengthening West African communities by employing women, educating children and empowering rural villagers.  When I was first contacted by the company's co-founder, I was struck by the beauty of the hand woven home goods Jjandge offers but it was their mission statement that REALLY got me.  Today Jjangde launches its new website which explains the history of the company, introduces its artisans and showcases the one-of-a-kind baskets that create opportunity and hope for many in need.

In gratitude for taking the time to learn about the company and its mission,  Jjangde is offering a lovely basket as a gift to one lucky Cocoon Home blog reader.
