I am a wife and a mama to 6 kids brought together through international adoption from China and the Democratic Republic of Congo. I love to laugh, I love to play, and I love to sew. Since no one is going to pay me to laugh or play, I’m hoping I can put my sewing to good use.
More Love Mama Global Textiles began as a way to raise funds for the adoption of our middle sons from the Democratic Republic of Congo. I started making handmade blankets out of African wax print fabrics that I brought home from Congo. I loved the idea that each of my blankets would wrap someone else in love. More Love.
I continued sewing through 2 more adoptions. Eventually my shop turned into a location for crafters and sewists to find fabrics from around the world: African Wax Prints, Australian Aboriginal Prints, Indonesian Batiks, and more. I also continued to sell hand made items using these amazing fabrics, such as, blankets, bags, children’s clothing, adoption related items, and whatever else strikes my fancy. I plan to expand our selection of Fair Trade products to include other housewares, jewelry and art. I want to use my shop as a platform for artisans from around the world to share their gifts.
Whenever possible I try to purchase Fair Trade hand dyed/hand woven fabrics made by indigenous artisans. At the very least, I make an effort to support the economies in developing countries by purchasing our fabrics from small, individual business owners and street markets. And I try to create an appreciation for the beauty of textile arts from around the world by exposing our shoppers to beautiful new prints and colors combinations.
I now have 6 kids, more love than I could have ever imagined, and only 2 or 3 spare minutes a day. But I love to spend that spare time soaking up the beautiful designs of the fabrics I sell and sew from. More Love brought me to this place. More Love keeps me creating. More Love feeds my soul.
**A portion of purchases made at More Love Mama will be donated to humanitarian aid groups that provide housing, food, medical care and education to the orphans of DRCongo. We also support adopting families in their fundraising efforts to bring their children home. So spend more and give more.
