Mark Stephenson is the man behind Sandstorm Kenya, and one we are lucky enough to hang out and work with. Sandstorm Kenya started out making luxury safari tents many years ago it still remains connected with the safari world through custom vehicle seat covers and safari chairs it is a heritage brand but today it makes East Africa's finest bags and accessories from canvas and leather.
They walk the talk when it comes to ethical production and if you happen to be in the hood Mark and his team will welcome visits from anyone who'd like to see how they do things. They can be found in the workshop just outside Nairobi in an old Irish pub - they moved the bar out, the sewing machines in and kept the kitchen so everyone gets a good lunch. Stay tuned for our next exciting future project. You can check our work with them in the JOURNAL.
