Our Story

StashBelt is a partnership between African artisans and Canadian entrepreneurs. We believe in trade not aid, empathy not pity. 

Starting off at a small workshop near Kikomba Market in Nairobi, Kenya, we provide on-the-job training and competitive wages in a country where human development is hampered by chronically high unemployment. We leverage Kenya's abundant, graze-fed leather and untapped human potential to create high-quality products, then send a portion of profits into Kenyan business start-ups to pay forward our success!
