MufikoA fusion of Nordic design + African Craft

Founded by friends, Mari Martikainen and Minna Impiö, who met while studying Textile Art and Design in Finland, Mifuko combines modern design with traditional Kenyan handicrafts + fair trade. The duo believes that slow consumption, fair trade, and handmade products are essential for building a happier future. They find that meeting with artisans is the most rewarding part of their work, and within the shared feedback loop, both the designers and the artisans are able to openly discuss their success, desires, and where improvements are needed. The handmade baskets provide a livelihood to over 1350 women and improve the lives of their families and communities.  Mifuko is a proud member of the World Fair Trade Organization.
