The shop is closed down at the location given on trip advisor. Sad to have missed it. We went to the address given which doesn't match the map location and the shop was vacant. If there is a new address let me know.

I was thrilled to find crafts that were different than many of the other places in Moshi. I brought home a gorgeous yoga bag and a robe made out of the local materials. The mamas are lovely, and I loved supporting a local grassroots organizations.

The handcrafts for sale in the Women's Arts and Crafts Co-operative are one-of-a-kind, and each is beautifully made. And you can tell by meeting with the women in the shops that each piece was lovingly created. And the prices are great!
