Ethnic Supplies is the brain child of Ugandan born Ida Horner.

Having visited the South West part of her native Uganda in December 2006, the Poverty that she witnessed prompted Ida to quit her job as a Housing Manager for a London council to set up Ethnic Supplies Ltd. – a social enterprise specialising in African handicrafts and textile, art and crafts from East Africa.

Ethnic Supplies supports women in the East African countries of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Madagascar by sourcing handmade handicrafts and fashion accessories from suppliers that support women to be financially independent or directly from established women's groups in rural locations.

We are a UK based business with no other overseas offices. Ethnic Supplies is owned by its founders and has no overseas subsidiaries.
