ABOUT US 

GLOBAL DESIGN

Drawing on the international experience of our designers, our pieces are conceived from a global design perspective.
Unity Makers furniture comes out of a design process which combines the traditional pencil and paper with cutting-edge computer modeling. This meticulous design process results in modern furniture that is unlike anything else in Kenya. Our designers carefully choose the right materials and work closely with Kenyan craftsmen in the Unity Makers workshop to ensure each design becomes a beautiful finished piece of furniture.

KENYAN CRAFT

All of our furniture is made locally in our workshop in Nairobi, Kenya. Not only is this good for the local economy, but it also allows us to carefully control the production process in order to offer the best quality to our customers. Our Kenyan craftsmen are highly skilled with years of experience. This may not be the cheapest or easiest way to make furniture, but we believe it’s worth it.

Unity Makers has partnered with CAP Youth Empowerment Institute, an NGO which trains disadvantaged youth in trade and life skills. After completing the training program, Unity Makers takes on graduates as paid interns in our workshop, where they gain work experience to help them find work in the industry or to continue on as apprentices with us.


SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

We believe that it is possible to create quality hardwood furniture without harming our environment. To that end, Unity Makers is committed to responsibly sourcing timber. We are seeking partnerships with NGOs, relevant government authorities, and directly with individual harvesters to ensure that the wood we use is sustainably harvested.
