Our Artisan Families
A family is like a forest, when you are outside it is dense, when you are inside you see that each tree has its place. ~ African Proverb ~
All of our pieces are a unique design collaboration with local Kenyan artisans, hand crafted in home-based family workshops. Additionally, all raw materials are sourced only from across Africa at a fair price, thereby helping to strengthen the local economy and empower small merchants.
Every purchase directly helps to provide a sustainable and reliable source of income for our beloved makers and merchants. We also support the Kawangware Street Children & Youth Project who make our gift bags from recycled paper.
Meet the AYAM family... Artisans Joyce, Stephan, Stanley, Gabriel, Harun, Paul, Jackie, Susan, Dan and never forgotten, the late Georgiadas. Not forgetting our bead merchants Sao and Abu.
