MIFUKO, (pocket in Swahili), is a Finnish design company. Our products bring together timeless Finnish design and traditional Kenyan handcraft. Each unique item is beautiful and hand made. “Kiondo” baskets combine Finnish design with Kenyan handicraft techniques.
Adding to the income in the pockets of skilled Kenyan women (we work with over 600 women artisans) was what Minna and Mari, two Finnish designers, had in mind when they founded MIFUKO in 2009.
The baskets, lamp shades, wooden decorations and bags are all handmade by self-help groups in rural villages.
Each MIFUKO product carries the name and story of the weaver.
MIFUKO production is fair trade guaranteed and uses sustainable materials.
