Each Swahili Coast product starts right here in our Wilmington studio!
Our Creative Director leads the process, designing original products to be handmade in East Africa.
We share the designs with our partners in East Africa. Tony, our Swahili-speaking Production Director, travels to East Africa to work directly with the artisan team–matching our vision with handmade, quality craftsmanship.
Our products are hand-cut, hand-beaded, hand-tooled, and hand-sewn by our skilled artisan partners.
Everything is made ethically in safe environments by fairly-paid artisans.
We ship all of our products by air freight.
