I have always had a passionate desire to bring alive Kenya’s stunning bead craft to the global style gourmand. Using only the finest and most durable products, a dream was born in the year 2011, to bring this ancient craft to newly minted Kenya artisans. 

Ian Kipkorir Rono

 I have witnessed time and time again low prices affecting our livelihoods even during bumper harvest periods. It is with this in mind that I started teaxchangeAfrica, an online tea store that provides a global market for local tea factories while offering a constant price for the produce. I believe as the company grows we will be able to impact our community by improving livelihoods.
