About Dsenyo

Dsenyo is a social enterprise.  We believe business is a powerful way to address social and economic problems. Countless challenges confront creative people in Malawi, Africa as they try to build their businesses, practice their craft & support their families. 

After living in Malawi, artist Marissa Perry Saints founded Dsenyo to create opportunity for hard-working, African women and artisans.  Dsenyo offers hand-crafted bags and accessories that celebrate African textile design.  We follow Fair Trade principles working to create maximum benefit for the women, artisans & communities in which we work.

I just wanted to say I received my wristlet and I love it!  I immediately dumped my old wallet and placed my possessions there.  My mom is a quilter and admired the craftsmanship as well as the beautiful materials used.   Thank you for donating this item to the Hearts for Haiti and your continued social and environmental commitment.  I will be back to purchase in your shop for a larger purchase for sure!>
