about the project
Manma Troll Atelier was established in April 2011 with financial and practical assistance from Project Haiti. The aim going forward is that the income from the atelier shall cover rent and other costs, and repay Project Haiti’s investments in relation to the start-up. The studio needs orders to be able to employ all the women. Atelier Manman Troll produces great shopping bags that can be bought or ordered in our web shop. The atelier has inter alia delivered conference bags to the Norwegian Midwife Association. Should you wish to have your favourite garment remade or replicated, contact Atelier Manman Troll at firstname.lastname@example.org.
