F.A.S.T. KENYA

How does this sound….Waking up to a cup of tea over some knitting with nuns, to gaining some knowledge from Masaai whilst trying out bead making before joining a nature reserve where Elephants are present as you visit an amazing garment factory that supports women with children, or visiting the Mombasa textile market before getting back the next day to see how the local leather is made into the most desirable pieces of accessories and realise how well bronze can be cast into the most gorgeous jewellery pieces. Does this have your name all over it? Ready to #gofastwithus ?

ABOUT KENYA

With its stunning beaches, reserves and large number of wildlife parks Kenya is indeed a beautiful country. The United Nations tells us that the country’s history dates to the Stone Age, making Kenya one of the countries in the world that possesses the largest and most complete record of man’s cultural development. Equally known for its savannah, lakelands, the dramatic Great Rift Valley, mountain highlands and wildlife home to lions, elephants and rhinos, this country in East Africa with coastline on the Indian Ocean is a country with great beauty and history to be explored. For business, it is a market which has both low and high risk areas. Specifically for the fashion industry, there is an abundance of various artisan skills, traditional textiles, garment production units too and high opportunities.
