Sew with African fabrics

Try traditional pedal sewing

One of the key income streams supporting the Ride 4 a woman initiative is from the sales of the beautiful products created by the women, from stunning African fabrics.

In the grounds of R4W, nestled in the hills of the Bwindi Impenetrable forest, you can learn how to pedal sew with the women of Buhoma, producing your choice of product, ready to take home.

You can make a coin purse, a pillow case dress, a bandana, a sunglasses case or maybe some napkins for the dinner table back home.


2-3 hours (fits perfectly around gorilla trekking)


  • Coffee/tea in R4W’s beautiful new dining hall, with home made doughnuts and cinnamon bread made onsite using a local recipe (we even share the recipe with you).

  • Your own pedal-sewn product to take home as a souvenir or gift.

The women of R4W are so talented at pedal sewing and taught me to make a simple purse which I took home for my daughter. A super day, highly recommended if you have a spare afternoon.
