Kimuli Fashionability / We transform plastic waste into fashion

Kimuli Fashionability produces up cycled fashion and accessories by training and employing persons with disabilities (as trainers for trainers). We turn plastic waste like used cement bags, milk packets, sugar sacks, rice sacks and others into designer products. Homeless or rural poor youth can gain earn income by collecting and selling to us the waste materials in their various communities. The pieces are then blended with African fabrics like (Kitengi, Sisal, Barkcloth) into unique fashionable garments like raincoats and accessories like shopping bags, wallets, laptop cases.We organize fashion shows where the disabled showcase the products.
