What’s it all about

The idea behind the Afrodutch Collections was to start a small income generating business for Kenyan women.  Making  beautiful home decoration products from disregarded mostly natural materials that could be found or purchased everywhere around. The making process should not need heavy equipment or a big infrastructure. It should be sustainable and ecofriendly.

This idea became reality in 2011 when Dutch Henriette Oldhoff met Kenyan Ruth Jepchirchir in the house of an American family, where Ruth worked and Henriette stayed for a while.

Nowadays Ruth owns the business ( called Afrodutchpaperstone) just outside Nairobi, Kenya.  She is responsible for the production of the Paperstone, Cottonfields and Bejeweled Collections. The Woodstock collection is made by others, a group of young men from Kibera, Nairobi.

Henriette owns Afrodutch Collections in the Netherlands and is responsible for the designs of all the products and does the marketing and sales outside Kenya.
