15 Flag Cotton Bunting - Kabisa
Launched in 2018 as a social enterprise by founder Victoria, our aim is to promote and market a beautiful collection of high-quality crafts and homeware made by East African women’s groups. Kabisa and the women’s groups work collaboratively so as to increase fairly traded sales on a wider scale. The world over, financial independence for women enables choices and therefore, liberation and empowerment.
As in any language, the meaning of a word varies greatly depending on its context. ‘Kabisa’ is a term of acknowledgment, frequently used in Kiswahili as a way of expressing complete agreement. For those who know, it’s all about the tone. Direct translations of ‘Kabisa’ are; completely, wholly, entirely or absolutely.
We believe ‘Kabisa’ encapsulates our ethos of honouring the makers and their communities ‘absolutely’.
Our profits are directed towards;
• Upskilling unemployed young Kenyan women, so as to increase self-employment.
• Increasing agricultural and livestock projects for those living within Kenya national park territory who encounter human wildlife conflict, and the implications of climate change, on a daily basis.
