Hello from Nairobi!
We're so happy to be back in Nairobi all together, and there was no better welcome than to go straight from the airport to Wasp and Sprout for a photoshoot and to see Ashleigh, Natacha, Nina and Angela looking radiant as ever in our dresses!
Angela, who you are all familiar with in photos (she's on the far right in the photo above), is a co-owner of Wasp and Sprout, a lovely cafe and shop located in the western part of Nairobi, and also a home goods designer and curator! We love spending time here, and would highly recommend a stop if you're in town!
No visit to Nairobi is complete without a stop at Kuona Artists Collective. Artists work and show out of converted shipping containers scattered across the property, and this is where one of our favorite artists, Dennis Muraguri has his studio! It's an incredibly inspiring place to wander and learn!
We always make sure to stop in and say hi to Flo and her team, who made our very first dress and continue to work with us for prototyping! Say hello to Roy, who helped to cut and stitch our first dress! Fun fact, we got to know Flo because her workshop was across the hall from my bakery!
Here's a little treat to warm up those long January nights! A selection of some of our favorite tunes from Mali and beyond, it's perfect for an evening by the fire or a cozy Sunday afternoon, wherever in the world you may be!
