Ah.. be prepared for your heart to grow by leaps and bounds by the end of this post you guys..
Meet Melissa Terranova, of Tukula - which stands for “we grow”… just wait until you read about the growth! Tukula was founded and brought to life by Melissa after living in Uganda for over a year.. she was inspired by the people, the place.. and realized the urgent need for job opportunities and change.
Tukula is a cause-driven business invested in giving young women an opportunity to grow above poverty. tukula does this by giving these women an above average wage for quality handmade products, an encouraging work environment, medical care and access to international markets. The women are then able to provide themselves and their families with homes, food, education, and hope for the future. Through working with Tukula, these ladies are gaining confidence, joy, and the opportunity to empower others.
See.. we warned you about that growing heart.. how amazing is the mission behind Tukula? We love everything this company is about.. right down to the one of a kind, thus limited edition, handmade fabrics straight from where these strong and beautiful women work each and every day. We know you will love peeking through the collection of clutches, totes, accessories, tees and everything that these kind and creative spirits keep coming up with..
…our wish list is pretty long already.
