HANDMADE BY US
We design and craft all our own products in house, because of this we are able to deliver you exceptional quality handbags, made from the best materials without the price tag of international designer brands. We have experience, expertise and a proven track record. Our production manager, Mary Mwangi, has worked on projects for Vivienne Westwood and Stella McCartney.
Risks and challenges
We like to think we have spent our time wisely whilst getting ready for Kickstarter. We have been through endless sampling stages and have set up our quality control to ensure our products will be perfect! We have partnered with reliable long term suppliers and our team of Maasai Colour tailors are second to none! We are very confident that we are ready to take the next step and bring our designs to life - just for you!
All of that said - manufacturing in Kenya is far from straightforward and we will be dealing with the day to day problems which we know will arise, power-cuts, deliveries getting lost etc. We have contingency in our plan for these events. Maasai Colour will never compromise on quality so if there are any problems which slow down our production for a few weeks then you will all be the first to know!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
