KOTIAM's unique handcrafted bags and jewellery are made from natural materials by female artisans in Kenya. The collection takes you on journey through the richness of African talents, traditional crafts and beautiful locally-sourced materials.
With every purchase from KOTIAM you are supporting our social entity which fights against period poverty by donating reusable pad kits that help Kenyan girls to stay healthy, happy and in school during their period. You can wear your KOTIAM accessories with pride knowing that with every item you buy you is supporting Kenyan women and girls.
We partner with two women's groups in Eastern Kenya who handcraft the accessories from local materials using skills and crafts that have been passed down for generations. In the creation of the bags these female artisans are gaining an income, self-confidence and sharing skills with their families and community. Our collection is made by women, for women.
