BLACKFLY DESIGNS

African fashion handmade in Kenya

Clothes

All Blackfly clothes are designed and manufactured at our own studio in Nairobi. We use artisanal African fabric  and upcycled materials in almost everything we do. This means that every item is bespoke, one-of-a-kind, and not available in different sizes or colours.

In order to make something just for you, we need your measurements and preferences.
  1. Take a look at some models for inspiration
  2. Handmade fabrics that we have in stock  – which ones do you like?
  3. Book a meeting at our studio in Nairobi, call +254 705 671 240
  4. Or book an online video consultation with Ruth. Bring a measuring tape, an assistant and an open mind. We deliver worldwide with DHL.

Bags

Bags for all occasions, made from upcycled materials: Leather from old leather garment, buckles, straps and zips from the second-hand markets and spill pieces from the clothes we make.

We’re upcycling because we want to be sustainable but also because it’s fun and satisfying to rescue quality materials and make something beautiful with it.

Every bag is unique like a piece of art.

Jewellery

All our jewellery is handmade in our own studio in Nairobi. We make earrings from upcycled brass, glass, cow horn and bone.

Facemasks

Three-layered cotton masks with pocket for an optional filter. Available for wholesale and in sets of five, in two sizes for best fit.
