Kitengela Glass is located outside Nairobi, Kenya. It is home to many artisans all transforming recycled glass and scraps of other materials into beautiful artworks, jewellery and home ware.
Kitengela operates with purpose. They employ over fifty people, support a local orphanage, award scholarships, loan school fees, and even repair the roads. They have planted a thousand trees, and recycle raw materials and fuel, and all the packaging is second hand. All objects are handmade and often combine different disciplines – there are combinations of casted and blown glass, mixed with metal, mosaic, stained glass, beads, cement work, mirror and many other recycled materials.
