DESIGNER / ALEX MATIVO
“Simply human” is a minimalist luxury brand designed and crafted by humans for the urban dweller with ethical fashion and story-telling at the root of our design DNA.
Nairobi houses the largest and most crowded urban slums in Africa, there are nearly 300,000 micro entrepreneurs doing small businesses out of them 80% are seamstresses and artisans. All of them live under an average of $3/day,either out of their micro-businesses or by working in sweatshops in poor working conditions. We aspire to bring such artisans in Nairobi and all over africa under the Ethnic network so as to improve their livelihoods through social and economic inclusion which is now possible only through our platform.
