Mum's employs artisans living in rural villages in Northern India, South Africa and Bolivia. We buy each and every product and agree a fair payment in collaboration with the village leader. Materials are always highest quality and local, either natural or recycled carefully chosen by thThe truth is our artisans cannot read or write, as they have never had a chance to go to school. Working for Mum's, and receiving regular income they may pay for their kids school. It is one of the things we are most proud of. 

Lead time during covid is about 4-5 months.  We are so sorry to keep you waiting! Rugs are made in time, but freight takes time.

MUM's

Mum's was born in South Africa 2006, when Finnish Outi, an artist, and mum herself, collaborated with 15 African women. They made sculptures for an exhibition in Finland, all weaved by hand, designed by Outi, empowering women who worked from home. All women were mothers, so the project was named MUM's.

Later on, it turned to be a name for a sustainable brand "Mum's Good with Goods". During the years a tiny art project has slightly developed into a sustainable design company, combining designers with sustainable production. Mum's has got production in four developing countries India, South Africa, Cambodia, and Bolivia. Everything is handmade as far as possible, people work from home, save travel costs to work. Materials are local either natural or recycled, and each Mum's product is signed by the artisan who made it.
