ZikoAfrika is a boutique contemporary brand inspired by the dual heritage of founding sisters Sisi and El. Each product is crafted in Kenya and reflects both European and African aesthetics for a modern take on traditional forms and materials.

With a focus on clean lines and minimalist design, ZikoAfrika reworks some of the most iconic pieces from the continent to create fashion forward, trend-neutral accessories.


Generating employment while promoting a positive image of the continent through high-end production is a central part of the brand ethos. 

In line with this, ZikoAfrika works with a number of ethically certified workshops and sources as many raw materials as possible from Kenya or the East African region.
