They have chosen women´s self help groups in rural villages and small workshops in cities as the makers of our Kiondo baskets, jewellery and bags. Their products are produced following the principles of fair trade. Their partner self help groups and workshops employ slum youth, people with disabilities and people with economically disadvantaged rural backgrounds.
All Mifuko products are handmade. There isn’t a lot of money invested - materials and skilled hands are all that is needed. By demand, maintaining a traditional skill pays off and is passed on to the younger generation. For the artisans Mifuko is an opportunity to improve their skills and invest in their workshops for increased income.
Mifuko is a certified member of World Fair Trade Organization WFTO.
