Work of hands and hearts

In Swahili, mifuko means pocket, and we ensure no one is left with empty pockets. For the artisans in Kenya, Ethiopia, Tansania and Ghana it means fair pay, empowerment and less dependence on unpredictable farming as a source of income. We are guided by our core values in everything we do: unique, joyful and socially responsible. With timeless design and high-quality materials, we want our products to bring joy for a long time and at the end of their lifecycle they can be recycled in an environmentally friendly. Just as every one of our artisans is unique so are the products he or she makes.

Depending on the size of the basket and the experience of the artisan it takes between half a day and two days to weave a basket. Once the basket is complete, the ends of the baskets are trimmed with scissors, which have also been donated to the artisans by the Finnish homeware company Fiskars. Each basket is marked with the name of the artisan who weaved it, and its journey from the warehouse to Finland and from there to resellers and into the customers’ homes begins.
