Kenya & Uganda Trip 2019



Recently we returned from a four week trip in Kenya and Uganda. Within our four weeks on the ground we spent a lot of time developing new designs, testing material capabilities with each of our artisan groups. As always, this short period of time with our team was really hugely motivating and provided us with plenty of inspiration for our newest range which we are looking forward to sharing with you all later this year.

We are so fortunate to have such generous, thoughtful people on the ground in both Uganda and Kenya that ensured we were well looked after and basically made everything possible. We will be sharing some of their stories along with some sneak peaks of our new range here on the journal, so keep an eye out!

In the meantime you can see some photos of our trip below!
