Kenyan Artisans

Every label is uniquely handcrafted by women in western Kenya. The labels are made using dried bark from banana trees. With inspiration from daily life, the women cut out designs and then glue them onto the handmade paper.

Inside the box, the women create colorful beads using recycled magazines. The women cut long strips of magazines. The pieces of magazine are then rolled around a toothpick, varnished, and set to dry in the afternoon sun. The beads are then thread onto a handmade twine. The twine is made using long pieces of banana tree bark twisted together.
