Acacia Creations Handcrafted Works - Kenya Fair Trade Artisans

Acacia Creations

Beyond Fair Trade: The mission of Acacia Creations has always been to improve lives in a long-lasting and sustainable way. Acacia goes beyond fair trade by creating jobs, providing training, and giving back to communities through its education and healthcare initiatives. Acacia works directly with thousands of craftsmen and women at its Nairobi, Kenya studio and across Asia to improve their skills and product designs. Acacia Creations was founded in 2007 by Maura Kroh. During her work in refugee camps across Africa, Maura constantly noticed the natural artistic talent of the residents and the beautiful hand-crafted items they produced. At the same time, she also noticed the frustration of artisans with no outlet to sell their crafts and no way to generate income from their work. And so Acacia Creations was founded as a way to connect artisans with the global consumer marketplace. In 2013, Maura's passion for beautiful, hand-crafted items led Acacia to Asia where it has expanded its fair trade partnerships. Acacia is now proud to work with extremely talented artisans in Thailand, Vietnam, India and the Philippines. Connecting Lives: It’s easy to forget the impact our purchases have on the world around us. Acacia Creations tries to show how closely connected you really are with artisan producers a world away. By buying fair trade, you make a very real impact on the daily lives of people in the most impoverished communities. Acacia Creations is proud to present this beautiful handcrafted work to the rest of the world. Member of the Fair Trade Federation.
