DESCRIPTION

The Boussouma Collection is made from old plastic repurposed into colorful, marbled beads. The technique involves prodding small chunks of pre-cut plastic onto a metal stick. The stick is then slowly rotated over a fire until the plastic softens. It does not take long but it does take skill and concentration - see for yourself   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IzEVQsiBRE

Made by Zemes Taaba, a women’s farming association in Burkina Faso, this collection creates income, helping them get by throughout the year, especially after harvest and before sowing crops.
