A warm welcome to the 3rd edition of Afrika Handmade Gallery!

At the beginning of this year, we challenged artisans and designers working in home interiors to come up with new collections that reflected this year’s exhibition theme of ‘Homegrown Design: From Kenya to the World.’

After a thorough selection process, we are proud to present various new collections in home décor +home textiles +garden, a stunning prefabricated living pod and fine art works as curated by One Off Gallery.

As you can imagine, the past several months have seen us experience our fair share of highs and lows. The one thing that we remain grateful for however, is the way our exhibitors embodied the values of Afrika Handmade: values of collective strength, innovation and determination to succeed no matter what. We congratulate all our exhibitors and are truly honored to carry your brands.

To our funders and partners: Alliance Francaise, Bamburi Cement, HEVA Fund, Banana Box and Kenya Copyright Board, we thank you for buying into the vision of Afrika Handmade.
Massive shout out to friends of Craft Afrika Goodie Odhiambo, Larrissa Muthoni, Priscilla Kirumba and Rob Rooker. You support is and has been invaluable.

Last but not least, heartfelt gratitude to the volunteers who have given of their time and energy towards the success of this event.

We hope you enjoy the showcase. More importantly, we hope you purchase an item or two or several form these fine exhibitors.
