Ethiopia is well-known for its coffee. But besides that, there are few products in the world market that are directly associated with Ethiopia.
But the country also has extensive leather production, and much of this is exported before it is further processed into finished products. Our suppliers are small Ethiopian companies, and all our products are craft-based. By selling finished products, we ensure that all of the value creation takes place in country and contributes to its development. Ethiopia has a long standing history in textile handcrafts and a large number of skilled craftsmen who continue traditional craftsmanship. In addition, they have good access to locally produced raw materials such as cotton and silk besides the leather.
Ethiopia is a country rich on resources and labour and with a rapidly growing economy but at the same time Ethiopia has its challenges, including high unemployment.
Through collaboration with Ethiopian craftsmen, designers and manufacturers we would like to make more Ethiopian-produced products known and available in the world market. In this way, we also want to help create and maintain new important jobs in Ethiopia.
