Stock Room

The African continent has a wide range of beautiful materials.

Our canvas is weaved in Kenya with East African farmed cotton. Our cow and goat leathers are from Ethiopia and Kenya. We recycle brass, aluminum, bone and horn to make much of the artefacts and hardware.

Canvas

We use canvas made from East African farmed cotton which is AZO dye tested. We dye the loomstate in Kenya so we can offer multiple colour options.

Leather

We use Kenyan and Ethiopian cow, goat and vegetable leathers for embossing, splitting, piping, fringing and weaving. These operations produce creative details on straps, handles, logos, zip pullers, tassels and feet.

Lining

Our Stock Room holds a variety of locally produced twills that we use as linings for bags. We also use recycled materials such as men’s shirts that are sourced from the local mitumba (second-hand clothing) market.

Zips

YKK is our main zip supplier offering zip tapes, teeth and zip-ends in a range of styles, sizes and colours.
