A female African woman mascot character for Manduwe African handmade. The emphasis is African and Handmade. In Africa the mother plays a vital role in mostly single households and she basically runs the household and has to learn skill such as bead-work or clay sculpting etc.. She also has the role of the trusted and respected symbol of African strength. She is always there to help. Therefore we will call her "MAMA" - the word used for mum, aunt, big sis, etc.. Plus most African moms are plus size and sometimes have a baby on their back as they go around their daily chores.
"MAMA" - the ever helpful character who can help you explore African Handmade and fall in love with it. She must have personality and the words MAMA like a superhero
