Acacia Creations was founded in 2007 by Maura Kroh. During her work in refugee camps across Africa, Maura constantly noticed the natural artistic talent of the residents and the beautiful hand-crafted items they produced. At the same time, she also noticed the frustration of artisans with no outlet to sell their crafts and no way to generate income from their work. And so Acacia Creations was founded as a way to connect Kenyan artisans with the global consumer marketplace.
The mission of Acacia Creations has always been to improve lives in a long-lasting and sustainable way. They go beyond fair trade by creating jobs, providing training, and giving back to communities through our education and healthcare initiatives. They work directly with hundreds of artisans at our Nairobi, Kenya studio and across East Africa to improve their skills and product designs.
