Swahili Modern

Swahili African Modern has been building relationships with African artisans for over 20 years. Founded by an avid traveler with a heart for sustainable development & a head for business, Swahili represents thousands of artisans from one of the world's most diverse & enigmatic continents.

Swahili operates from a small warehouse in the Pacific Northwest, but our network spans the globe. At all times we are developing handcrafted products directly with artisans in Africa, bringing them in by sea container and plane to Oregon and then shipping them around the world to shoppers just like you.
