Swahili Imports is a small but mighty team that connects African artisans to the global market. They envision a world where all artisans have a reliable income and the ability to build a prosperous future. We carry their products because we love their mission and the fact that they utilize sustainable materials that are unique to Africa, like kisii soapstone and elephant grass.
Swahili Imports has partners in fifteen countries across western, eastern and southern Africa. They are a current member of the Fair Trade Federation and guarantee fair wages and education opportunities to all makers, protect the rights of children, and work to conserve the environment. They work hand-in-hand with artisans to problem-solve, improve designs, and streamline operations.
