MokoMaya

MokoMaya

In our search for funky stuff for your homes we came across MokoMaya - a Nairobi-based craft store centred on up-cycling glassware into a variety of décor pieces. The name ‘MokoMaya’ means ‘these hands’ in Kikuyu; an paen to the hands-on approach in making these items.

Founded in 2020, MokoMaya are taking on glass waste and turning it into beautifully crafted functional home pieces. Founder Nyandia Kamawe instills her passion for visual art & creativity throughout each piece, adding a personal touch to her creations.

Tables

Kitengela Hot Glass's range of furniture includes dining, café & coffee tables. Chairs can be found here.

Tables arose from the strength and functionality of the dalle de verre technique - the matrix of glass, steel and cement are extremely durable.

Our furniture is also born of necessity - our need for tables for our cafe, for example.

Contact office@kitengela.com for more information or if you don't see something you like, or to check what's in stock at the studio.

Waya

Waya

A collaboration with Dumont.


Hand-crafted from locally sourced recycled materials, “Waya”, (Swahili for ‘wire’), is a social Impact program by Dumont to support an artisanal community of skilled Kenyan craftsmen. The basis of this initiative is to provide these artists with an avenue to showcase their talents and a means to better their lives by being compensated appropriately in an otherwise marginalised industry.

Each model is hand-made by an attentive artisan who has (over a long period of time) mastered and perfected the creation of that product only. The pieces - that take hours to produce - are then exclusively powder-coated in an array of vibrant colours.

Proceeds from this program are contributing towards the opening of a vocational training centre.
