Introducing Kibera Classics

Kibera Classics is Ministry Of Tomorrow’s flagship project in Kenya. Our factory, where we exclusively create our collection of bags, is located in Langata just outside of Kibera, one of the largest slums in Africa. Our bags are created from fair wage and sustainable materials whenever possible, and our factory is proven to be a sustainable model which provides jobs and empowers people. Our team of highly-skilled tailors who work in our factory and create our collection of luxury, designer bags are all from the slum.Currently, we employ twenty-two people. Our employees are paid three times the Kenyan minimum wage which allows them to not only provide their families with their basic needs but also helps them to save for their children’s education and find a way out of the slum. Since we are unable to provide jobs for everyone living in Kibera, we also provide training on the weekends for people who want to obtain a skill and find themselves employment. Our factory represents job opportunities, and our bags represent a way out.
