May 3, 2015 - Pockets are the best. Glad this one is long enough for me. Though it still hits above the knee, and I never wear things above the knee, I really like this skirt. Bought two of them, and the M fit fine (which is my usual size, though I do tend to wear smaller sizes in skirts/dresses rather than pants). They did go up a little in the length upon first wash. Have found the clothes on this site to be high quality and flattering (some longer dress lengths please!). Especially like the flexibility in the waist. I highly recommend.

June 26, 2014 - Great skirt! I have always loved skirts with pockets, but as a mom I have a new respect for the pocket. They store my big girl's treasures, and allow me to run into a store with my keys and wallet (sans bags/diaper bag), which is a bonus. The pockets on this skirt are a bit small, but they get the job done. As for the sizing, it says that the sizing runs small so I ordered a large, though I'm a tried and true medium. It's ... well, large. Next time I'll order a medium.

May 1, 2013 - I bought this one size larger than normal because of the 100% cotton and allowed myself some shrinkage. I bought the green which is more of green-blue of sorts. It's a beautiful color, so comfy and the tie at the waist makes it fit perfect everytime. Love it and will have to buy myself the other colors. Perfect for travelling as these can be dressed up or dressed down with accessories!

Artisan: One Mango Tree

Artisan One Mango Tree

"No matter how difficult things get, the mango stays green...And in times of drought, we can eat its fruit to survive."

Northern Uganda is a region devastated by more than twenty years of armed conflict. Despite the fact that most of the conflict has subsided and many people are returning to their villages and otherwise peaceful lives, the ongoing violence destroyed many of the opportunities for earning a livelihood, especially for women. One Mango Tree was founded by and remains under the direction of a young American woman named Halle Butvin, who fell in love with Uganda's culture while on a student trip organized by the Global Youth Partnership for Africa. She recognized the talents of the many tailors of Gulu's central market, and thus One Mango Tree was formed as a partner to sell their products in a global marketplace.

Many of the women employed not only care for their own families, but also for children orphaned during the war. In addition to providing a vocation to these women, One Mango Tree provides school fees stipends to help alleviate the cost burden of sending so many orphaned children to school, as well as bicycles to ease the commute to work in the market.

One Mango Tree works with Ugandan and American designers to create their products, mixing the bright African wax printed fabrics purchased in local markets with functional design. Using foot-treadle sewing machines, the women make both traditional and modern style clothing.

Auma Lucy

Auma Lucy is One Mango Tree's head tailor and trainer, providing support and a vocation for the women she employs. Lucy is a single mother herself, caring for eleven orphans in addition to her own two children. Known throughout the community for her kindness and tailoring talents, Lucy became a magnet for young people, in the hopes that she could impart some of her knowledge and skills so they too could make a living. Having struggled herself as a young single mother, Lucy would accept as many women as would fit in her market stall. With the help of One Mango Tree, Lucy's tailors are now paid fair wages, helping them to improve their lives.
