Our Mission

fabric-tableKenzania is devoted to helping provide employment opportunities for sewers and craftsmen in Kenya and Tanzania. A portion of our proceeds will be returned to these communities. We are an American, woman-owned apparel and accessory company. Our products are sewn in “cottage” industries in either Kenya or Tanzania and constructed with Kitenge and Khanga fabric traditionally worn by women in East Africa. ¬†Your purchase from Kenzania will help to change and improve lives in East Africa!

sewingwomenKenzania currently has clothing sewn in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Iringa, Tanzania and central Kenya. Our workshops are devoted to employing people within their local communities as well as providing their employees with comfortable working environments, fair wages and steady incomes. We have chosen a very impoverished developing area of the world with limited employment opportunities. Our goal is to slowly grow while simultaneously employing more trained sewers and craftsmen.
