I set up Aspiga in 2006 after visiting Kenya on holiday, and falling in love, not only with the country itself, but with their stunning sandals and so many of their other wonderful handmade products. Luckily, many of you also seem to love their products, so the company has expanded rapidly over the last few years. We are now stocked in over 500 boutiques and department stores around the world.
I now have six suppliers in Kenya (where the majority of our products are made), who are individuals with small work forces (not large factories), giving much needed jobs to local men and women in their community. The work they receive from aspiga, they often tell us, ensures their livelihoods and that of their families. Please take a look at our Producers to find out more. We also source our sandals from India, where again we use small suppliers.
I am especially proud that Aspiga, is not only selling some fabulous accessories, but is also helping to fight poverty through trade.
We have expanded our range quite extensively over the last year, selling many exciting and new designer beachwear and clothing brands. So now you should be able to find nearly everything you need for your holidays, to help you travel in style.
Please do get in touch if you would like to: feedback on your purchases; see us selling anything else, or to just say Hi. Presently we have a Fefo rating of 99% customer satification, regarding our service. As a small businesss I believe staying in contact with our customers and delivering a great service as vital.
We hope you enjoy the Aspiga “experience” as much as we enjoying designing and choosing all the products, and thank you for your custom.
Lucy Macnamara, Founder and Owner
