If you've been following our blog, you would've noticed that TungaTunga Hcrafts has made a few appearances...and for a reason! Situated in the heart of Nairobi, TungaTunga is run by Lornah and specializes in beautiful handcrafted African clothing, home decor and accessories.
Zia Collections provides, as they would put it, clothing "for women, by women." Their collection is sleek, modern and empowering, just take a look at their Instagram. Two more great things : all their products are made in Kenya, and worldwide shipping is available!
Genteel Fashion & Grooming
Genteel was founded by Sam and Brian with the mission to "re-discover, reclaim and celebrate Kenyan cultural identity" through fashion. As such, their collection includes a wide range of African inspired menswear crafted in Nairobi by local artisans. Worldwide shipping available.
With a mission to reduce environmental pollution in urban spaces, Collark Designers produces fashionable and sustainable garments made from recycled clothing material.
Amid this busy holiday season, consider giving back. Whether it be purchasing from one of the small businesses on the list to donating to Mkono, your gift will immediately go towards supporting a young entrepreneur.
