We channeled social purpose & passion into a strong e-Commerce brand. Kushukuru, meaning “gratitude” in Swahili, is an ode to travel. Made for explorers' homes, their luxury handcrafted pieces economically empower women and educate girls of the Maasai tribe. Alexandra, our founder, was personally invited by the founder to travel to Kenya and help work with the Maasai women to see firsthand the work these artisans do. These experiences have created lifelong memories, and inspired ALX to pursue online branding work with mission-driven brands.


kushukuru was a start-up with an important vision that needed to develop a brand and platform from scratch to sell their product online. They brought on ALX to create their business platform online in order to support their mission-driven goals. With limited resources available, ALX got creative with how we approached developing and sharing this story online, never losing sight of the importance of the work kushukuru set out to accomplish.
