Meaning & Purpose:
Raffia is harvested by extracting liquid from the raffia palm tree. At first, raffia is green but it is then stripped and dried by the brilliant rays of Uganda sunshine and turns into a beige color. Once fully dried, the KAZI team carefully dyes the dried strands to match Pantone colors. After, the material is distributed to the weavers who take the materials to their homes where they weave your beautiful home decor products right alongside caring for their families and farms. Imagine, the pendant in your home first started it’s life half a world away in a woman’s home in rural Uganda!
Kazi is on a mission to create the world's most beautiful gifts, handmade by master craftsman in rural Africa. Modern design meets traditional techniques. Kazi designs on-trend conversational wall statements, serveware and lighting which are then translated into natural fibers through direct work with skilled weavers.
