ITEMS
FOR SALE

We occasionally receive some beautiful local crafts from our network in Kilifi County that we like to sell here in the UK. The money raised goes directly back to the maker, helping to support and showcase some of their amazing work.

BAGS AND MASKS.

These bags and masks have been designed and created by Charo Mwamure. While the masks were made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the bags are an add-on, to ensure that all excess fabric was used with zero going to waste.

We have a large selection of different prints and designs to choose from - see below.

Mask and bag: £15

Mask: £5

Bag: £10

All prices incur £3.70 postage to UK addresses (or we can deliver by sanitised hand, if local).

Please click below to order items. In your email, specify which design you would like and whether you would like a bag and mask, or individual items.

BRACELETS.

These bracelets are made by a man in Malindi called John, who was inspired by the beaded necklaces worn by his grandmother. He makes the beaded pieces simply out of a passion for art, and wants to show future generations that traditional craft was flourishing and colourful. 

 

Bracelets are £10 each.

All prices incur £3.70 postage to UK addresses (or we can deliver by sanitised hand, if local).

SOAPS.

Dabaso Community Initiative

​Members of the Community Unit have been trained to make soap with coconut oil and neem (mkilifi/ muarubaini, Azadiracta indica).

Neem is highly effective in preventing and treating heat rash, eczema, bacterial and fungal skin infections, scabies and jiggers.

The group sells the soap within the community to ensure everyone has access to soap, and creates some income for the group to sustain it. 

£5 for bag of soap; £2 for one bar.

All prices incur £3.70 postage to UK addresses (or we can deliver by sanitised hand, if local).
