Kilele was established in 2019 with two foundational goals.
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.
