“This is a big win for our tailors in Nairobi. Against all odds, they have shown that given a chance with training and access to basic tools, luxury craftsmanship and sustainability is possible” said Julian Prolman, founder and president of Ministry of Tomorrow.

The MOT eco-factory was established directly next to Kibera, the largest slum in Kenya, so that tailors living in Kibera have an opportunity for fair wage jobs, where they can walk a short distance to work and have a chance for a better future.

MOT’s Nairobi facility produces high quality, limited edition, handmade eco-luxury vegan bags with an aim to deliver abundant social and environmental good with each bag sold.
