“I am 36 years old, and I have been a wood carver for the past 17 years. I was born in Rwanda, but I flew the country during the war to found peace in Kenya. Wood is my passion, and my life-support as allowed my 6 children to attend school and eat regularly. I am very thankful for this order, and I pray for more to improve the quality and quantity of our work.”

“I am a blessed father of 4 children, and I have been part of the Rangau community for almost 3 years. This job changed my life, and the life of my family. I thank Artisan Fashion so much for providing us work and I am looking forward to receive more orders to expand our community and create employment for more people.’’

We carry out a Social Impact Report for every collection made in collaboration with the Ethical Fashion Initiative. 

Social workers are embedded in the communities in which we work, and closely monitor the implementation of our code of conduct. 

Extensive data is collected to carefully measure the impact of each order, to ensure that the work is positively impacting the lives of the artisans and that our projects are working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
