It is an old Kikuyu house filled with Africa’s finest craftsmanship from upcycled jackets and silver jewelry to beautiful wooden bowls and intricately designed rugs, excited shoppers discovered a wealth of artifacts, accessories, homeware, and more. 18 rooms or ‘shops’ of fabrics, toys, baskets, beads, soaps, and smiles, this truly was Nairobi’s best-kept secret.
