Our Story

The name “Zizi”, taken from the word “Mizizi” meaning roots, epitomizes the diversity and striking beauty of the African continent. It is our aim to showcase the continent’s profound essence through our range of handcrafted leather goods.

Our leather bags and accessories are inspired by a wealth of African cultural heritage combined with contemporary designs for the modern day person.

Our Approach

A great deal of time and expertise has been invested in perfecting our craft. We are committed to creating refined; functional bags with the highest attention to detail that will withstand the test of time.

Our ethically manufactured products are meticulously handcrafted by a unique group of experienced artisans in Kenya using only the finest hide and sustainable locally available raw materials.

Our Philosophy

Making an impact on the socioeconomic status of the communities we work with is important to us. Zizi Africa offers young people with alternative livelihoods in the fashion and handcraft sector.

To this end we work with the older generation of experienced leather masters who pass down treasured skills and knowledge in traditional craftsmanship techniques and culture to the future generation of artisans. We take pride in knowing that we are playing a small part in promoting meaningful employment and development.
