This African patchwork apron was handmade with love in Ghana, West Africa. Fashioned by a talented team of deaf artisans, each apron is a unique work of art; no two alike. This apron is made using pieces of traditional African Wax Print cloth. It has two large pockets below the waist. It is machine washable.

by purchasing this apron, you are guaranteed a unique, high quality handmade design that will not only impress, but will have an immediate and definite impact on the Ghanaian Deaf Community. Look for our Logo!

Our Talking Hands has been working since 2009 to empower and improve the livelihoods of deaf community members, by teaching business and entrepreneurial skills as well as improved health and environmental practices. Our Talking Hands serves to challenge deep rooted stigmas surrounding deaf culture.

In Ghana, the deaf are at an economic disadvantage. Deaf people are marginalized by stigmas rooted in traditional beliefs and are often relegated to the outskirts of towns. Those lucky enough to be placed in schools are given hope, while many do not have the opportunity to attend schools and remain in their villages and left to a life of hard farming and manual labor. Many people believe that the deaf cannot learn and, therefore, there is no reason to send them to schools. Others believe that deafness is a curse, passed along as punishment for past transgressions. At Our Talking Hands, the deaf and hearing work side by side. We seek to dispel harmful myths while producing some of the finest African arts and crafts available.

Our Talking Hands is rooted in the deaf community, but remains open to any artists or groups that commit to working with the deaf community as educators, employers, or mentors. We value independence and wish to empower individuals, but we also strive to promote interdependence through collaboration and inclusion. Proceeds from our sales assist in the development of schools for the deaf in Ghana, with the hopes of growing our mission to include neighboring countries in West Africa. By supporting the local schools in Ghana, we hope to equip the students with the necessary skills to gain employment and become economically independent.
