Lucy Macnamara set up Aspiga seven years ago after visiting Kenya on holiday, and falling in love, not only with the country itself, but with their stunning sandals and so many of their other wonderful handmade products. The company has expanded rapidly over the last few years.
Aspiga has six suppliers in Kenya (where the majority of its products are made), who are individuals, with small workforces (not large factories) giving much needed jobs to local men and women in their community. The work they receive from Aspiga ensures their livelihoods and that of their families.
Aspiga donates a percentage of its profits to The Brydges Centre, a children's orphanage just outside Nairobi, which struggles financially on a daily basis to carry out their hugely valuable and necessary work.
