Our Vision & Misson
Why Kipato Unbranded? "Kipato" is the Kiswahili word for income. This underscores the social justice core of the enterprise. We ensure that our artists are empowered by their work and receive fair wages for their creativity. From its’ beginnings, profits from the artists’ work, whether sold in international or local markets, go directly to the artists, creating a model that is sustainable and fair to them.
We are “unbranded” because we are focused on creating jewellery by everyday people, for everyday people.
Who We Are
Kipato Unbranded was founded by 5 young women from different cultures and backgrounds that created a social enterprise that collaborates with local artists, promoting their talents and skills and gives them access to markets. Kipato Unbranded is about beautifully crafted unique designs. Our pieces are made from local materials that include brass, recycled bone, and beads.
