The Hub-supported companies are similar in that they meld traditional African influences with modern flair; they are also export-ready with the capacity to deliver high-quality, custom products on time to international buyers.

Zohra Baraka, Managing Director of Mohazo, based in Kenya, is excited to present her African inspired handicrafts to a global market. “Our home décor, accessories and gift packages are unique, high-quality, and affordable,” said Ms. Baraka.

Anne Moraa from Sanabora Design House will present a distinctive range of home and fashion accessories that represent a fusion of contemporary design and indigenous African concepts.

Sil’ouette from Madagascar says, “Our main objective is satisfaction for our customers. Our products are made of natural fiber and our vegetable color are handmade which symbolizes made in Madagascar, the art of living and protecting the environment.”

Goodie Odhiambo, from Goodie Interiors in Kenya, works with many talented weavers and artisans to create beautiful, original handmade products with variation in materials from wood to textiles, metal and ceramics.

Chebet Matai of Wazawazi in Kenya describes his work as, “an Afrocentric leather brand that seeks to tell the story of modern day Africa, which is often misunderstood.”

"It is a pleasure to attend Ambiente with our clients from Kenya and Madagascar. I believe the European audience will be excited to see the beauty and unique products we have to offer that both complement a modern home furnishing assortment while also offering something new to their customer." - Llenay Ferretti, home décor and fashion advisor for the East Africa Trade and Investment Hub.
