Handmade Kiondo collection

In Swahili, kiondo means basket.

Kiondo baskets are a Kenyan tradition, woven with a special traditional technique. Each piece is handmade by skilled women in rural villages - our Team Kenya. Their knowledge of weaving has been passed down from generation to generation. 

The core idea behind Mifuko is in its name: in Swahili, ‘mifuko’ means pocket. With Mifuko, everyone is let with something valuable in their pocket. For the artisans in Kenya, it’s fair pay, empowerment, and less dependence on unpredictable farming as a source of income.

For Mifuko customers (that’s you!), it’s a unique piece that weaves together classic Nordic design, traditional Kenyan handcraft, and the story of a strong, independent woman whose signature you can find on the label.

Materials

All Kiondos are handmade and unique as well as very eco-friendly, achieved by using locally sourced natural fibres, paper and either recycled or upcycled plastic in our products.
