EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE
Mifuko's wonderful baskets help you organise your home and to find the right place for everything from small toys to pillows.
This wooden box can be used for storing salt and spices in the kitchen, jewellery or small items at home or in offices. Perhaps it's a secret stash for candies?
Mifuko works with the MADE51 workshop to give work to refugees living in Kenya. Kapya Kitungwa is a refugee from Congo and has set up his workshop in Nairobi to provide work for other refugees living in Kenya. Wood carving is a traditional handcraft in Congo, a skill that is passed down through generations. Kapya Kitungwa learned the skill from his father, and today he creates unique and beautiful wooden items with his team of other refugees. Kapya dreams that his workshop will continue to grow, providing much-needed income for these artisans.
