Our mission at Amsha is simple...
We want to make the world a better place, for our people and our planet, one handmade piece at a time. We use design and business as a tool to educate and employ underserved artisans in East Africa by providing skills training and a market connection. Nearly all of our pieces are designed in our Portland, Oregon studio and delicately made by our artisans in Kenya & Rwanda.
We believe in the slow fashion movement and create our goods with environmentally friendly and fair trade practices in mind. Using local and recycled materials, such as brass, bone, horn, and indigenous grasses, we create modern, tribally inspired pieces that we hope you will love and feel good about purchasing. We are creating jobs, promoting education, and improving the quality of life in East Africa. Won't you join us?
