Inzuki Designs, founded by Teta Isibo who named it after the Kinyarwanda word for 'bees,' features a bold, innovative style that uses traditional materials crafted in contemporary styling by local artisans. Inzuki is located in downtown Kigali, Rwanda.
Inzuki partners with women’s cooperatives and weaving groups who use their skills to bring ideas to life. The inspiration behind her designs comes from the textures, colors, and patterns of everyday life in Rwanda, fused with modern style and fashion trends. Inzuki specializes in jewelry, accessories and home décor items handmade from local materials.
For the women working in the cooperatives, Inzuki designs is more than just a relationship based on supply and demand. For many of the women it’s a means of rebuilding their lives post-genocide. Through Inzuki, the women have been able to move on with their lives. Because of their work, their children have been able to go to school and the community has benefited with medical insurance and home improvements.
