Finding the Light
The Lapuan Kankurit TSAVO scarf is designed by design Company Mifuko.
Lapuan Kankurit and Mifuko share the same values when we consider the traceability and sustainable development in our products. Mifuko is another Finnish company that produces beautiful Kenyan Kiondo baskets as they employ over 600 women in Kenya! Mifuko is a certified member of the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization). Both companies are supportive of women in Finland and around the globe through their work, know-how and use of Finnish Design.
The founders of Mifuko: Textile Artists Mari Martikainen and Minna Impiö, designed our two collections: TSAVO and MERU. Both collections combine the best of Finnish forms and Kenyan colours in their designs. Inspiration for the collections came from alternating scenes from the coast, highlands, mountains and savannas of Kenya.
