Our products are produced for you in Tanzania and imported as a finished product to Germany. It is very important to us that the value added in Tanzania and not in the distant Europe takes place. The products are preferably made by craftsmen in rural regions and are not manufactured in a large factory.
We value the direct trade with small producers without middlemen or commercial companies. We set the prices for the products by mutual agreement with the artisans. The price of the final product includes an education and investment premium, which is intended to enable the manufacturers to carry out further training and the expansion of their company, as they imagine it.
It is also important to us that we act transparently for you as our customers. So there is a detailed price information on each of our products, which you can see how the price came about. The product name kipoa is a fusion of the Kiswahili words, „kitenge“, the East African cotton fabric from which our bags are made and „poa“, the word for cool. Thus stands kipoa for the „trendy fabric“.
We hope you like our idea, you will support it and tell us about it. We promise you that your money will come to the people who have made the kipoa product and to give it a place in the world market that allows them to participate fairly. We are peaceful and committed to shaping such a world and hope to win you over.
Thank you for your interest in kipoa!
Many Thanks! Asante sana!
