Turkana bags and baskets are woven in the Turkana region where inhabitants are a nomadic people whose livelihood is threatened by constant and worsening drought conditions in what is the poorest region of Kenya.
Turkana bags and baskets are woven with a special traditional technique where the knowledge of weaving is passed on from one generation to the next. Each piece is handmade by skilled women in rural villages - our Team Kenya.
The core idea behind Mifuko is in its name: in Swahili, ‘mifuko’ means pocket. With Mifuko, everyone is left 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.
All our products are handmade and unique as well as very eco-friendly, achieved by using locally sourced natural fibres, paper, wood, leather and either recycled or upcycled plastic in our products.
