In Swahili, mifuko means pocket, and Mifuko ensures no one is left with empty pockets. For the artisans in Kenya, Ethiopia, Tansania and Ghana it means fair pay, empowerment and less dependence on unpredictable farming as a source of income. Mifuko is guided by their core values in everything they do: unique, joyful and socially responsible. With timeless design and high-quality materials, they want their products to bring joy for a long time and at the end of their lifecycle, they can be recycled in an environmentally friendly way. Just as every one of their artisans is unique so are the products he or she makes.
