Hand made with love in Cameroon
“NOMAH.FSL Creations” is the brand of Nomah, an African woman who has spent most of her life passionate about African arts and crafts. After the death of her husband in 1995, she decided to make a drastic change in her career and to devote herself entirely to creating African crafts as an outlet and an alternate source of income to take care of her two kids. With a couple of girlfriends, she started a small organization in which she created and sold handmade mud jar linings and other crafts.
Although it was a short-term project, it was the beginning of a long-term passion. She continued to make these creations for personal use and to offer as presents to relatives. 20 years forward, she has rekindled this entrepreneurial flame by producing raffia and leather bags, coasters and keychains, as well as other interior design products for sale, with the hope of harnessing her creativity and empowering local artisans through employment and fair-trade practices as she partners with them in the production of these special crafts.
