About the Artisan Group
A certified member of the WFTO, Mifuko works with women's self help groups in rural villages and small workshops in Kenyan cities to create their Kiondo baskets and interior design products. All baskets are produced following the principles of fair trade. Their partner self help groups and workshops employ slum youth, people with disabilities and people with economically disadvantaged rural backgrounds.
All Mifuko products are handmade. There isn’t a lot of money invested - materials and skilled hands are all that is needed. By demand, maintaining a traditional skill pays off and is passed on to the younger generation. For their artisans Mifuko is an opportunity to improve their skills and invest in their workshops for increased income.
