Our mission is purposeful production.
From our production hub in Nairobi, Kenya, we connect Africa’s artisans to esteemed luxury brands all over the world. We give our clients and their customers the opportunity to improve, trace, and report on the lives of those involved in their production.
From regional materials to handcrafted bags, basketry, jewellery, and accessories – we create opportunities for the artisans who make them.
We engage in projects and partnerships that further our ESG commitment and the attainment of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
In 2021, we strengthen our partnership with the EFI through a collaboration with La Camera Nazionale Della Moda Italiana for the co-creation of an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Due Diligence System. Artisan Fashion is the first producer in Africa to adopt this ESG Due Diligence System. By working with us, brands are welcomed into the EFI network whereby they have the opportunity to be a part of sustainability conversations for the future.
Our mission is to change the cultural stereotype around women impossibility to earn a living. Since 2010, we have successfully proved that, using our beadwork traditional skill, we earn a living but also support our family and improve the general conditions of our community. Our collaborations with Artisan Fashion have allowed us to build semi-permanent houses and a school for our children
