Chris Way is the founder of the Atinga Project. After a study abroad in Rwanda Chris came back and wanted to do more with the experiences he had in Africa. The tire sandal that was crafted for him was a constant reminder of how different the world was and the life he had there. Because of this, he founded the Atinga project which connects Rwandan artisan crafters with people in the West who want quality, environmentally friendly, supportive, long-lasting footwear that is interesting and unique
I had actually done a very similar project for some time and therefore am very interested in this as well. Listen to how developed the project and raised over $13,000 on Kickstarter. We catch him 4 days before leaving for Rwanda to get this incredible project started.
Let's wish him luck!
