Ajiri Tea’s handmade packaging labels depict scenes from the everyday lives of the women in Western Kenya who hand pick the tea—women cooking over a fire, fishermen paddling a boat, animals grazing. Each label is handcrafted using dried bark from banana trees. The cellophane bag inside each box is tied with handmade twine and brightly colored beads made from strips of recycled magazine paper. 100% of profits are donated to the Ajiri Foundation to pay school fees for orphans.
