Kilele was established in 2019 with two foundational goals.
1- To handmake leather gear with peak quality and design.
2- To have an eternal impact on our neighborhood in Nairobi and across the globe.
Our name, Kilele, means “summit” or “peak” in the Swahili language and was chosen because of our goal to deliver the highest quality products. In our earliest days, we had products custom made in one of Nairobi’s outdoor artisan markets and have progressed to having our own workshop where we can control the quality from start to finish.
We are located in Pangani, one of Nairobi’s most diverse neighborhoods with many challenges. At Kilele we are working with multiple partners to be a blessing to the community and find ways to love our neighbor in sustainable, practical ways.
Out of a desire to give back to the community of Nairobi, Kilele - meaning summit or mountain peak in Swahili - was founded to provide steady uplifting jobs and instill eternal values in local impoverished communities. We exist to leverage quality gear and fair prices to create sustained economic empowerment.
At Kilele, our gear is the peak of African quality and ruggedness. Designed using high-quality leather and canvas our gear is versatile while uniquely African. Our craftsmen take great pride and joy in hand stitching and preparing each piece!
