Made In Kenya

KenyanMade

As you can expect from a company named after a tasty childhood treat, all our designs are pretty personal in some way or other, and ‘Made In Kenya’ is an ethos that’s close to our hearts. Beyond shouting out a really special country, we feel that this design encapsulates a lot of stuff we’ve been thinking and talking a lot about.

This design is about the people who are working to build local economies, and brands that have cultural currency in Kenya, and the world. This design is about supporting those people, whether it be the local mama mboga, musician, designer, artist, jua kali guy e.t.c.

We feel it’s important to create stuff that inspires people, that makes their day in some way or other, and we also feel that it’s important to support the people that are creating these things.

The thing about most small local businesses is that they tend to be more ethical, environmentally friendly than your regular multinational company. Now wouldn’t it be great if we all supported local producers rather than sweatshop factories and nature destroyers who are only out for profit without regard for the future generations and the earth.

We really appreciate the ChilliMango massive for all the support, and for letting us know that it’s possible to build something like this in our city. It’s hard to create handmade products and sometimes you interact with people who don’t necessarily understand everything that goes into it but it’s great to see more people buying locally produced products. You guys are awesome!!

Keep growing your local economy and wear this t-shirt while at it 🙂
