Kenzania is currently contracting with four different sewing /craft shops in Kenya and Tanzania
The Robes, Billboard bags and tablecloths are made in a small (10 employees) shop in Dar es Salaam, Tanznaia and managed by a woman who is commited to the philosophy of no waste. These employees are readily employed with a good working environment and fare wages.
The lined baskets and big kitenge beach bags are made in Iringa, Tanzania by a shop which trains and employs over 100 people. Some of these people work in satellite locations again allowing them to earn an income when they may physically be unable to travel. Their motto is “Changing the lives of people with disabilites in Tanzania, through training & employment.”
The majority of the clothing is made in a small workshop in Dar es Salaam. Since the beginning of Kenzania, production has moved three times however our main tailor, Patrick Wafulu has moved with us. The most recent move was to a small workshop on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam. I am proud of Patrick and his eagerness to be successful. Patrick is from Nairobi and travels home when time permits to see his wife and children.
