Because each heart is handcrafted using natural materials, slight variations in color, size, and shape may occur.

Based in Harare, Zimbabwe, Swahili Imports extends each artisan's channel of trade from local markets to the global marketplace, all while providing artisans the option to work from the comfort of their own homes and communities. Secure in the knowledge that the fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs and haggled prices, most artisans in the Swahili network promote their family's future by using earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.
In addition to supporting these highly skilled individuals and their community, the products created are made with the environmental impact in mind. Artisans are encouraged to utilize recycled, reclaimed and highly renewable materials in product design. Great for the environment, and ideal for creating one-of-a-kind works of art!
