Opened since this year March 2017 The Rafiki Shop at Kenyaways has a vast array of gifts, souvenirs, clothing, beach wear, kids items, suncream and toiletries, and jewellery. All are carefully selected from local artisans where possible, with the aim of supporting local businesses. Some examples of these are;
The Wild Earth Botanics range of cosmetics and oils, completely natural and made here in Diani from tropical ingredients.
Johari Glass range of recycled glassware from bottles into beautifully engraved dishes, glasses, ashtrays and more, all made here in Diani Beach.
Terry Bear Toto Project based in Nairobi to support impoverished women who have no other source of income. Unique designs of decorations and toys by Terry Stobbs, with intricate details and embellishments.
Barry Koeneke photos on canvas range of beach and town scenes in and around the east african coast. Incredible value and vibrant colors would make any room a statement.
Hand made jewellery from Lamu made from recycled silver and washed up China from sunken Chinese trade ships hundreds of years ago.
4shore organic and eco printed shirts are a range of beautifully printed light and comfortable cotton tops and tees made in Kilifi, North coast Kenya.
For those of you who remember the LALESSO SHOP at Kenyaways you can still get the garments online at www.lalesso.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
