Thea x Kisany – Medium pouch Madame Rayonne
Handmade with dignity by artisans in DR Congo.
To celebrate all the women, KISANY has teamed up with Thea Jewelry to create a limited edition of bespoke pouches.
Together, we designed a pouch with the signature of Thea jewelry to celebrate the light shone by the mothers we know. Each pouch is hand embroidered and made in 15 hours in Goma, DR Congo by four amazing artisans (and moms) Odile, Justine, Esperance and Jeannette. With each stitch they share their light to celebrate them and the “Madame Rayonne” in our lives.
Made from 100% Belgian and sustainable linen from Libeco each piece is made to last like the strength of those behind it. Each piece not only provides work but half of any profit will be used to sponsor three young mothers in training programs. Learn more about the collaboration here.
As a limited solidarity edition dedicated to mothers, girlfriends, businesswomen and sisters at heart, half of the profits will be used to finance a 6-month training programme in agro-ecology for two girl-mothers (aged 16-25) in Goma, DR Congo. This program is managed by our partner NGO: En avant les enfants.
The aim of the training is to help these girl mothers (aged between 16 and 25), who are responsible for many people, to get out of the extreme poverty in which they find themselves. They will learn the basics of market gardening, grafting, planting, beekeeping and raising chickens and rabbits. This 6-month training aims for these young mothers to re-enter communities through income-generating activities. Through these basic skills they can take steps towards financial independence.
Keep in mind that with artisan handmade items, slight variations are to be expected. This is what makes each pieces one of a kind.

TABLE LINEN – 100% LINEN, LINEN-COTTON OR LINEN-POLYESTER
Before first use: Prewash your linen at a low temperature (30 degrees) with a small measure of a mild soap and a lot of water. Do not wash with cold water.
Washing instructions thereafter: Wash your linen as soon as possible after use, especially if there is a spill.
Do not overload the machine. Chose the machine setting with maximum water level.
Use a mild soap. Avoid strong detergents, especially concentrated forms. Do not use softeners or detergents with optical whiteners when washing linen.
Avoid all types of bleaches. Restrain the use of softeners. Recommended temperature is a warm wash, 45 degrees as a maximum!
Fill your drying tumbler with half the normal capacity in order to let the linen move freely during the drying process. Line-dry if desired. Do not over-dry. Use a short cycle setting as linen dries quickly.
Use a medium temperature machine setting, and a slower tumble setting.
100% linen and linen/cotton can be ironed at the highest temperature with a hot steam iron. Linen/polyester can be ironed with steam with a medium hot iron. Iron on the reverse side.
BED LINEN – 100% COTTON PERCALE
Before the first use: Pre-wash the KISANY bed linen machine embroidered in cold water, without using a detergent All hand embroidered KISANY bed linen has been pre-washed by hand in our Kigali atelier.
For the first three times of washing: wash at 30 degrees max, using a qualitative detergent without chlorine, nor optical bleaching agents and hang dry.
Always use a high-quality liquid detergent – no fabric softener!
Avoid overloading the machine and always turn the KISANY bed linen inside out while washing, washing at 60 degres max, normal process.
Always wash dark colours separately. During the first washes, dark colours will emit rather a lot of superfluous colouring agents. This is normal, it will stabilize very soon later on during washing.
Never leave the bed linen wet in the machine, to prevent colour migration and wrinkling.
Do not wash the KISANY bed linen together with other fabrics, especially not fabrics that contain polyester. Polyester damages the natural fibres and will affect the softness of the KISANY products.
Do not dry clean. For ironing instructions please follow the label.
All KISANY products are made from natural fibres and as a consequence will shrink. If you follow the washing tips, the shrinking behaviour will remain limited.
