JIMANI COLLECTIONS

KENYA, AFRICA

 
 
 

Jimani Collections began with a small group of impoverished Kenyan women and a short class based on learning basic jewelry skills. With the help of many dedicated people both in the US and in Kenya, Jimani Collections has grown from a one-week class into an ongoing training and design entity.

Jimani Collections seeks to create a sustainable solution to poverty. We work with some of the poorest in the world - women who have experienced a harsh reality that few in the US can imagine. We offer these women employment and education within product design and product creation. By building a bridge between consumers and artisans in the developing world, we're able to promote equitable trade while alleviating widespread poverty.
