Our Products & Producers

  

worker signs

 

Designed in London, handmade in Kenya and India.


All of our hand beaded belts and sandals are made by hand, meaning that hours of work goes into each product we put out. One belt takes a full day to bead, each sandal takes three hours. Our leather is sourced out of a tannery in Nairobi, dyed and sun dried.

With products that require so much input, we choose our suppliers carefully. Currently, we collaborate with five Kenyan suppliers who make our beautiful sandals, belts and Kikoys.

We work exclusively with small workforces who employee only employees of an appropriate working age, pay a fair wage, treat their employees with respect, and provide good working conditions.

The production process of our belts and sandals truly is an art.


Read what some of our suppliers have to say about working with Aspiga:


“I have been making sandals for Aspiga for six years now, and each year we get steady orders which we are happy about. We recruit unskilled men and women (most of them are one of the following tribes: Massai, Kikuyu, Giriama, Taita and Luo), we then train them in beadwork and sandal making (the ladies do the bead work and the men work with the leather and the rubber). 90% succeed within 2 weeks. Most workers have been working with us for over three years and have either purchased small farms in their villages, invested in cattles or are educating their children through primary and secondary schools. We assist them with small interest free loans periodically and also subscribe to a governmental retirement agency for most of them.”



“We have been working with Aspiga since 2008 and each year our quality has got better and better. When we started working with Aspiga we were very small and all the work was done in the back of our house. Due to the work we have received from Aspiga we have now built a small factory, we are very pleased with the big orders we are receiving. I now employ 35 local people in my small local town and I pay them all fair wages and I give them food when they turn up to work in the mornings. I am grateful for the work we receive from Aspiga.”
