Safi Bengalia's Profile

About

6000 kilometers away from Madrid, i have been living and breathing the Kenyan culture since 2012.
From the beginning i fell in love with the country, its people and their vibrant energy. Wanting to give something back to the community i began working with local skilled artisans to create unique accessories not just inspired by the Masai and coastal culture but also made by hand, the old fashioned way, preserving the traditions and skills of the Kenyan craftsmanship.
My goal at Nawe, is to empower the local communities giving them hope through the dignity of work, a fair wage and the freedom of being self ­sufficient, building a better future for themselves and their families. Nawe Kenya aims to be a reference for how the fashion industry should be.
