Grant Opportunity

We have applied for an expansion grant of $250,000 from Chase Bank that would enable us to hire people, update our website, and all kings of cool things.  We need 250 votes by June 30th to qualify, yes it's one of those social media things!  We would humbly appreciate your vote.  Just go to https://www.missionsmallbusiness.com/, search for Tango Zulu Imports in Port Gamble, WA, and click vote.  Easy peasy!  Meanwhile we leave you with this beautiful image of a telephone wire basket.  Thank you for supporting Tango Zulu and fair trade.

Fun New Fair Trade Products at Tango Zulu Imports

We are ecstatic over our new fair trade products from Kyrgyzstan, like this stuffed felt frog.  We have assorted ornaments, scarves, toys and throws made from felted wool and silk, all handmade in a workshop in Karakol, Kyrgyzstan.

Also, our collection of African baskets continues to expand.  We now have Zulu telephone wire baskets, Swazi baskets, Botswana baskets, and more varieties of Bolga baskets.  All are beautiful, practical, handmade, and fair trade.

Last but not least, we have some incredible artisan chocolates made locally here in Kitsap County, WA.  We are especially in love with the salted caramels.  Stay tuned for some fair trade and organic chocolate from Congo.
