Company Snapshot

Company Snapshot

Launched in 2011 by friends Tatiana Santo Domingo and Dana Alikhani, Muzungu Sisters offers ethically-sourced handmade luxury, produced by 16 different artisan communities across four continents. Each piece possesses a remarkable history, adding value and meaning to garments that are designed to be kept for years to come.

Muzungu Sisters shines a light on the under-exposed work of the artisans responsible for their collection, by commissioning items produced using thousand-year old weaving and embroidery techniques. By working solely with fair trade cooperatives, non-profit foundations, family-owned workshops and sole artisans, Muzungu Sisters is able to maintain a close relationship with every producer and ensure that the entire production process is transparent. 

Since its inception, Muzungu Sisters has been regularly featured in key global publications and its colourful pieces have come to be synonymous with wanderlust itself. The brand has developed a cult following among US and Asian markets and those seeking rare, travel-inspired pieces. Tapping into their global clientele, Muzungu Sisters curates travelling pop-up shops around the world showcasing their wares.

Outward-looking collaborations with like-minded designers Missoni (2012), Delphine Delafon (2013) and Olympia Le Tan (late 2015) have futher enhanced the brand's collection of classics.

Muzungu Sisters in 2012 received Spain’s TELVA magazine annual Fashion Sustainability and Solidarity Award.

In October 2014 at the United Nations Secretariat in New York, UN NGO Women Together awarded Muzungu Sisters with their annual Fashion for Development Award for bringing artisan-crafted fashion to the forefront of international consumer trade.
