Collaborations

Uupi Tirronen
Photographer Uupi Tirronen began her collaboration with Mifuko in 2010, traveling to Kenya with Minna and Mari to meet Mifuko's local partners. Uupi's authentic personal touch is easily recognized in her photograps of Mifuko interiors and products. With her deep insight and appreciation of Mifuko's designs, she brings out the form and essence beautifully in each of her photographs.

Helene Wikström
Helene, a Swedish photographer, lived in Kenya for many years. During that time, she photographed the Kenyan landscape and most notably, she took the magnificent portraits of our artisans.

Aino Huhtaniemi
Minna and Mari began their collaboration with Aino in 2019 when she started her first project photographing Mifuko bags.

Made51
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) founded Made51 to bring together refugee artisans and international companies. Companies that collaborate with MADE51 use the refugees’ skills in the design process, in production and also for marketing the products. The refugee artisans work directly with these companies when developing new products.

Mifuko started its journey with MADE51 in 2019, collaborating with Kapya Kitungwa and his workshop in the production of ornamental wooden birds. Mr. Kitungwa is a Congolese refugee living in Nairobi, where his workshop employs other Congolese refugees from the area. Through this collaboration, Mifuko has been able to expand its support to communities as well as with women in rural Kenya.

WFTO
The World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) is a global community of Fair Trade companies. WFTO maintains a guarantee system, ensuring that its members are truly Fair Trade companies. Their members are pioneers of business models that put people and the planet first. Mifuko has been a member of WFTO since 2014.

Finn Church Aid
Mifuko began cooperating with Finn Church Aid (FCA) in 2018. Our goal was to expand our network of women's groups to one of FCA's areas of operation in the province of Turkana, and its large migrant settlements of Kalobeyei and Kakuma. In the project, Minna and Mari  designed prototypes and the production process of lamp shades and leaf baskets in the town of Lodwar and some nearby villages. FCA's office in Kenya has provided support to Mifuko in both communications and logistics.

Finnpartnership
Mifuko has received Business Partnership support from Finnpartnership for projects in Kenya. The financial contributions cover planning, development, training and pilot phases of projects in developing countries. The goal of the projects is to create long-term sustainable businesses and partnerships in Kenya.

Hanna Anonen
Hanna has designed magnificent soapstone candleholders for Mifuko. A Helsinki-based designer, Hanna has an industrial design degree from the Lahti Institute of Design as well as a Master of Arts degree from Aalto University.

Hanna's playful and colorful style fits in perfectly with Mifuko's values and products. The candleholders are made in a Fair Trade workshop in Kenya.

Lapuan Kankurit
Mari and Minna, Mifuko's founders, have the pleasure and honor of collaborating with Lapuan Kankurit,  a family business in Lapua, Finland that weaves textiles with responsibility and respect for the environment.

Inspired by Kenyan colors and landscape, Minna and Mari combined traditional Kenyan colors with Finnish sensibilities in beautiful linen designs. The first linen collections draw inspiration from Kenyan landscapes  around Tsavo, Meru, Watamu and Lewa.
 
Finarte
Finarte is a family-owned company from Kotka, Finland that creates woven carpets in collaboration with socially responsible producers in India.

Minna and Mari designed a mat for Finarte inspired by Mombasa, Nakuru and Turkana that display the warmth of Africa’s colors, sun, fragrant spices and sea breeze.
 
Genelec
Genelec International creates world-renowned audio equipment and software solutions for studios, homes, education and research. Mifuko is pleased to be a tenant in their office building in Helsinki. In cooperation with Genelec, Minna and Mari have done interior design work in the Helsinki office as well as other Genelec properties.
