We are a group of Sudanese youth, our project is called “Craft Store” which is a startup company that aims to reflect the heritage and the traditions of Sudan, represented in handmade products and crafts made by local artists and artisans, in order to encourage them to grow and explore their full potentials in new markets.
The platform has a number of creative Sudanese craftsmen and craftswomen, our goal is to work on traditional handmade goodies with natural elements to spread the image of beautiful Sudan, we love explaining the origin of each element and the backstory of each item to make sure that Sudan’s heritage is well preserved.
Sudan was totally isolated from the world despite the huge resources that we have, the isolation affected a lot of aspects that could have been very helpful in supporting entrepreneurship and startup companies and it made it super hard for us in terms of technicalities and financially as well.
Craft Store contributes to creating a social impact by organizing workshops to help artisans develop their talents and expand their audiences in order to have a chance of increasing their sales.
We have enrolled some individuals from the disabled communities and helped them with their product development and much more.
We try our best to make our products as green as possible and to spread the message and importance of recycling and upcycling to the youth community as well.
Joining Souq Fann is a great collaboration for us, as it opens new doors for the Sudanese youth and exposes them to new markets and new daily potentials.
