About the Artisan:
When she was a child, Nora Matunda’s hometown of Maungu was a tiny village subsisting off charcoal burning and bush meat. Too poor to afford school, Nora considered taking up charcoal burning herself. However, what little knowledge she had of environmental issues led her to opt for working on her family’s farm. Eventually, her family was able to send Nora off to study tailoring.
On returning to her village, which had grown into a small town, Nora took a gamble and opened her own tailoring business. The business took off, and in 2002 she became one of the pioneering seamstresses to help launch Wildlife Works’ Eco Factory. Today, Nora is a supervisor.
