Collection: Hamaji

Location of artisan makers: Kenya

Hamaji, meaning 'nomad' in coastal Swahili, is an African designer collection created around preserving ancient textile traditions and nomadic craftsmanship while empowering small-scale artisans in Africa.

Reigning from the East coast of Africa, Hamaji was born in Kenya in 2017 by designer Louise Sommerlatte. Built on the principles of sustainability and conscious consumerism, their collections are composed from natural fibres, botanical dyes, hand craft, embroidery, and up-cycled collected vintage textiles.

Hamaji is inspired by East African charm and embodies a spirit of nomadic femininity with pastel hues, free flowing silhouettes, and a delightful sense of elegance.
