Mankada is an initiative of the MJF Centre for Empowerment through Traditional Arts & Crafts which was set up primarily to support and empower marginalised communities living on the periphery of the Udawalawe National Park in south eastern Sri Lanka. Mankada produces one of a kind handmade terracotta kitchenware, replicas of animals, pendants, mugs, teapots, tea bag holders and a variety of beautiful and original craft. The art is inspired by the Udawalawe National Park in the vicinity, home to many species of fauna and flora. These ethical handmade products are marketed to consumers worldwide through the Dilmah distributer network.
We encourage you to use the Ethical Tea Society membership opportunity to purchase these ethical items and support the empowerment of these women potters and their families in Sri Lanka.
