Eco-textile brand Kahoko offers beautiful woven textiles with a conscience, all of which use renewable natural fibers. The team brings sustainable knitted fabrics from Kenya into the home, designing simple yet decorative interior products from hangings to cushions. Every piece of their items are handmade by some 250 knitters located in the country’s Rift Valley, whose slow craft is an essential part of Kahoko’s ethos of fair trade work and timeless design. Their collection is a seasonless yet constantly evolving range, every element of which is created meticulously by hand. Even the name Kahoko symbolizes sustainability, inspired by the name of a weed indigenous to the region and suggesting that even a weed can have a function.
