TEGAA: Founder and entrepreneur Nay Secka purchases Tegaa's jewellery and accessories directly from the Gambian artisans who handcraft each piece. Based in San Diego, Tegaa is the first and only company offering authentic Gambian fashion outside of Gambia. The bangles, waistbeads, fans, and more are carefully crafted in the traditional Gambian style, making them truly authentic and one-of-a-kind. Tegaa supports the Gambian community by fairly paying the artisans and allowing them to create the pieces at their own pace. Tegaa also gives back by donating a percentage of profits to the charity Power Up Gambia, which provides solar-powered energy to hospitals and clinics in Gambia. CARE: Cowhide leather lining is a sustainably sourced by-product of Gambia's edible food industry.
