We do not see ourselves as charity makers, but business entrepreneurs with a social impact. By selling our products a cash flow is created in the community, people are getting employed and sick people are treated.
BanguraBird is a social business producing a range of handmade products at a pedal-powered tailor shop in Masanga, Sierra Leone. The production generates a sustainable source of income for the reestablishment of Masanga Hospital. BanguraBird supports the local community by making sure that people are getting employed and sick people are treated.
BanguraBird product portfolio started with a range of bags made of used bicycle tubes, that are upcycled into sleeves, bags and pouches with a dust and water resistant outside and beautiful African fabric on the inside. Following a bigger interest in the colourful African fabrics we have started a range of mens accessories like bow ties and pocket squares, coloring up men to stand out as modern gentlemen with a deep story behind.
Our company is Fair Trade certified, managed from Copenhagen and sold at selected retailers and webshops all over Europe.
