Who We Are
Fulla & Fayda was founded in 2016 by sisters Natalie Diongue and Jackie Wallace when they discovered the beauty of Senegal's handicrafts and had a vision to bring the products of these talented artisans to the US. In the Summer of 2019, husband and wife, El Hadj and Natalie Diongue became co-owners of Fulla & Fayda in pursuit of their dream to incorporate the best of both their American and Senegalese cultural backgrounds.
Natalie served three years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Senegal - where she met her husband, learning about and loving the people and customs of a vibrant country. El Hadj is a friend of the arts who did American studies and has a desire to build bridges between his country and the US. Our items are designed by us and handmade by talented Senegalese artisans. Together, we believe in the value of small business and creating unique and lasting products that will be a bright yet functional part of your life.
