Inspired by the bold colours and patterns of African wax textiles, Moyo – a quirky, East African design house – creates individually handcrafted interior décor. Skilled artisans use traditional tailoring techniques to create a contemporary Swahili-infused aesthetic, embodying the carefree kaleidoscope of contemporary Swahili style and culture. All Moyo’s distinctive home accessories feature the signature embellishments of playful pompoms and bright Maasai beads, capturing a fusion of cultures, tribes and traditions. Following Fair Trade principles and a philosophy of sustainability, Moyo repurposes most of its waste and utilises various recycled materials within its product ranges. Furthermore, each sassy piece is entirely individual and serves to support the artisan who made it.
