Hand crafted by local Kenyan artisans.
All of Hamaji gets stitched together at a small collective in Nanyuki called Mitumba Arts. It consists of 20 local artisans working together, mostly in creating items made from second hand clothes found at the ‘mitumba market’. All the profits are collectively shared between the artists consisting of tailors, upholsters, hand beaders and painters.
The Embroidery is done by a small group of 4 artisans that Hamaji work closely with in the Ngara slum of Nairobi; together they design and create the embroidery patterns, encouraging their creativity and supporting their small business in the mean time.
