‘In 2005, I went on holiday to Kenya and was awestruck by the artistry and craftsmanship I discovered. Delicate, hand-beaded sandals. Intricately adorned belts. Beautiful, bright jewellery..
The local people were crafting works of art that needed to be shared with the world. So, I established Aspiga, setting out to stimulate the economies of these talented artisans whilst providing beautiful, quality, handmade goods to customers all over the globe. From hand beaded sandals, belts and bags to Masai inspired jewellery and accessories.
Ethical trading is at the heart of the business, working with wonderful suppliers in small factories, providing much needed jobs for local people. We regularly visit our suppliers and workers to maintain a strong relationship.’
