The story of two friends
Mifuko was founded in 2009 by two Finnish designers, Minna and Mari. The idea for Mifuko was born at a market in Nairobi, Kenya, where Kiondo basket weaving is a traditional craft. Minna and Mari were amazed by the craftsmanship of local artisans and wanted to share it with a wider audience.
Mifuko was founded with a clear objective: to combine Nordic design and traditional African handicraft into a business that directly benefits rural Kenyan women and their communities. In Swahili, “mifuko” means pocket, and we make sure that no one's pocket is left empty.
We at Mifuko have been radically sustainable from the beginning, striving for sustainability in everything we do. We are determined to be a part of building
a better, sustainable future. We want to contribute to solving the issues humanity faces, such as poverty, gender inequality, pollution, and loss of biodiversity.
