About the Brand
Swahili was founded to help traditional African craft forms thrive. Artisans can earn a living from the comfort of home by doing creative work, so they have options beyond seeking work in cities. Through export, skills inherited through generations - sometimes with deep-rooted cultural significance - continue to bring meaning, stability and a sense of pride to entire communities. Crafting handmade products provides a particularly vital employment option for rural African women. The backbone of the family, rural women cook, clean, garden, care for the extended family and often shoulder the burden of paying school fees. Creating products from home around daily responsibilities empowers rural women as earners, while working together on orders brings communities together and highlights the power of teamwork. By following fair trade principles, Swahili offers their artisan partners across Africa the means to build stronger homes and communities by their own design.
