needle+thread Ethical Design

August 31st, 2016

needle+thread is a sustainable home design brand that connects Kenyan artisan craftswomen with a global and modern clientele for interior designs!

Ethical fashion and fair trade are at the centre of what they do; they work with Bebe Ravi cooperative to employ Kenyan Maasai women to craft beautiful interiors and beads.

Their work is beautiful in its simplicity, and still manages to infuse that priceless East African feel. What’s more, their model empowers their female artisans and raises their incomes. We love the whole thing – model and products alike.

These lovely interior designs:
