Dada Duka

Fair Trade Hand Made African Baskets - weaving really does put food on the table... .
30 Jan 2024

Single handedly providing employment for over 150 women full time in rural Kenya. All women paid directly. No middle man - no factories....!

For many years I have had the great fortune of visiting my sister who lives and works in Africa with her husband and children.  Each visit brings a new adventure, profoundly uplifting but not without awareness of the troubles faced by the population. My passion for home decor, textile art, African craft and the affection I have for the people who live there, inspired me to create Dada Duka.

The name Dada Duka is a fusion of these two influences – it means Sister Shop in Swahili.

Dada Duka currently employs over 100 women, full-time, in rural villages in Northern Kenya. We also work closely with two other weaving groups in South East Kenya. The support we provide is significant in terms of providing a regular wage direct to these ladies and their families who live in very difficult circumstances.

All Dada Duka baskets are handwoven by women artisans- not factories. Their skills have been passed down from Grandmother to Granddaughter and are still made in the traditional way. By purchasing a Dada Duka basket you are investing directly in helping secure a sustainable future for these ladies and their families. Women are earning and this is a wonderful thing!
