Kaarna Living

SERA HELSINKI was born from love for handcrafting and design. All the products are made in Ethiopia – SERA is an Amharic word and means ’work’. The products combine both Finnish design and traditional Ethiopian hand craftsmanship.

The products are ethically made. Their aim is to improve the living standards of the artisans. They empower the most vulnerable groups in Ethiopia – the people with disabilities and single mothers. They want to create as many jobs as possible, so all the parts of the production are handmade. Especially the situation of the people with disabilities is desperate in Ethiopia – most of them end up as beggars on the street. They train and employ blind artisans in Addis Ababa. They cooperate with Ethiopian NGO:s as well as with Finnish Abilis and Kynnys. Year 2016 they started with 8 weavers, but at the moment they empower over 100 artisans, most of them blind.
