One of Amani Kenya’s specialty products are handmade quilts. Designed and crafted in Nairobi, Kenya, each quilt is one-of-a kind.
First, some fabrics are hand dyed, batiked, and/or screen printed at Amani Kenya. Traditional East African kitenge and kikoy fabrics as well as high-quality West African mud cloth are sometimes incorporated into each masterpiece.
Next, quilters measure and cut each piece.
After that, quilters hand-stitch all of the bindings and use a free-arm sewing machine to quilt, swirl, and meander unique patterns.
Finally, a quilter labels her handiwork with our Amani path symbol to represent our individual lives coming together for a common journey towards peace and reconciliation.
