By following fair trade principles, we offer our partners across Africa the means to build stronger homes and communities by their own design. At Swahili Modern, we believe that adaptation helps traditional African craft forms thrive. Artisans can earn a living from the comfort of home by doing creative work, so they have options beyond seeking work in cities. Through export, skills inherited through generations—sometimes with deep-rooted cultural significance—continue to bring meaning, stability, and a sense of pride to families and entire communities.

"Love these bracelets!! I have worn them for years. I mix them up and wear multiple colors at a time. I work, play and live in them. I never take them off. I love telling people about the cause when they compliment me on them."
