Mifuko was founded in 2009 by two Finnish designers. From the beginning, they were inspired to combine modern design with traditional Kenyan handcraft and fair trade.
Today Mifuko is a successful Fair Trade company, and our work is ever more urgent. In Kenya, climate change has led to recurring droughts making farming, traditionally the primary source of income and sustenance, an unreliable foundation for a stable livelihood. The income artisans earn from Mifuko helps ensure families are fed and cared for when crops can no longer provide security.
