Founded in 2003, the Global Mamas community is comprised of thousands of people from around the world working together with the mission of creating prosperity for African women and their families. The Mamas define prosperity as going beyond financial well-being to include happiness and good health. They achieve prosperity by creating and selling unique, handcrafted products of the highest quality. Being able to do the work they love and being empowered by financial independence leads to greater happiness. The Mamas realize their dreams of having the opportunity to support their families, send their children to school, improve their health, and save for the future.
Global Mamas products are full of life and love. Each item is hand-crafted using traditional techniques, maintaining local artisanal skills such as batiking, bead-making and Shea butter production. Global Mamas products are unique and high-quality, tended to with care through a meticulous quality control process and by a dedicated customer service team. Our products include:
– Hand Batiked Textiles: Apparel for Kids and Adults, Accessories, Home Décor
– Recycled Glass Beads: Jewelry, Home Décor, Ornaments
– Shea Butter: Shea Butter Cream, Shea Butter Soap, Black Soap, Bulk Shea

Global Mamas is a full member of the The World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) and The Fair Trade Federation (FTF) a trade association that strengthens and promotes North American organisations committed to fair trade practices.
Global Mamas is recognised as a fair trade manufacturer and distributor. This distinction was granted after a thorough investigation of their business practices to ensure the African women who comprise the Global Mamas producer network are the primary beneficiaries of proceeds from product sales.
