Made by Kenya 🇰🇪​

Limited offers curated for you

Our mission is to share Afrikan design with the world.

We’ve partnered with a number of local brands, makers, artists and designers to make Kenyan design accessible to more people.

 

 

‘Made by Kenya’ bundles are curated with care to ensure they represent the diverse cultures and high quality of our community’s work.

 

 

This collaborative effort means we can offer a limited number of their products at prices much lower than usual.

Several of the girls have become leaders at RefuSHE, and many have been resettled at home and abroad.

Hardcover Sketchbooks

Perfect for doodling, drawing and journaling.

Known for his colourful paintings, pencil comics and illustrations, Quotmie also creates these tactile and practical notebooks.

We’ve been using one since NDW2020, it’s highly durable and the brown paper is a perfect touch 👌🏽

PACE LIVE Bluetooth headphones

The pattern that represents our identity has been custom printed onto these Pace Live wireless bluetooth headphones, and has been worn by the team of creatives behind the ‘Labelled Human’ music video. 

They come with a 15 hour rechargeable battery, carrying pouch, USB cable and a micro SD card slot so you don’t even need to be connected to an external device.

Braille Greetings Cards

The inclusive values of StudioHISI and attention to detail of Wis and Crafts combine to make these beautiful, hand-crafted designs with messages in Swahili/English and braille.

StudioHISI made braille NDW stickers for visitors at this year’s Nairobi Design Week festival, and exhibited their fashion line for the visually impaired.

Afrikan Mask Prints

Modern and traditional techniques such as 3D printing and woodcut printing have been combined by the artist to create a set of one-off pieces inspired by the iconography of Afrikan masks.

 

EAT SLEEP DESIGN REPEAT

These woodcut prints were hand-cut, carved, printed, and dried in the NDW studio. See how we did it in the photos!

Only 30 of 100 remain, so this is your chance to grab a piece of NDW history 😉Approx size: 35 x 45cm

You may have second thoughts about sharing these 🤫

They’re freshly made by hand in Nairobi with natural ingredients, and come in multiple flavours including ‘Rock Classic’, ‘Thrill Chilli’, ‘Energy Sprout’,  ‘Labania za Njugu’ and ‘Midnight Chocolate’.

There’s even ‘Secret Sesame’, for those with peanut allergies.🚫🥜
