A Connection to the Great Rift Valley As the birthplace of the Continents and humanity, the Great Rift Valley cuts through East Africa along escarpments, and dotted with fiery volcanoes, magical lakes, and fertile soil. It is a land of tea and coffee-growing, and long-horned cattle raising. Its plains are crisscrossed with animals of all sorts and the footsteps of nomadic ancient cultures.
Made by Hand We source our leather from plains near the Athi, Sagana and Nakuru rivers in the Great Rift Valley. The traditional lands of the Masai nomadic people, our cows are raised on expansive ranges by families tending small herds. The cattle sometimes scratch against Acacia trees and roam in the bush where the slight variations in their hides can occur. Rather than blemishes, these variations create an individual character to each of our products. Our designers and craftspeople create your product with care and precision in an atelier on the outskirts of Nairobi. Everyday, they combine generations-old craft with design to fit modern lifestyles. Each of our products arriving at your door contains this tradition and story of East Africa.
