Kenya is famous for it’s cattle and the leather is top quality locally sourced and treated. The patterns on the belts are based on traditional designs and each bead is sewn by hand, yes really, and the work is highly skilled! The workshop employs over 60 people in the village of Kilifi and provides important employment for the locals.
In an era when most goods are mass produced in large factories it is refreshing to find something that is truly hand-made, original and supporting a local cooperative. Aside from the feel good factor we have never had one of our belts or dog collars returned, the craftsmanship is outstanding.
