OUR TIPS

The first time we saw the brand was at a pop up in Tokyo.  As I was waiting my turn at Starbucks with my reusable bottle to get my coffee, the colorful products of Kangarui at a nearby store really stood out.  True to their concept, Kangarui is an ethical lifestyle brand that reflects the founder's amazing life experience in Kenya and we love that they want people to get to know Kenya's wonderful wildlife through Kangarui and spread the positive image of Africa.  This is a stylish, bright, durable and light African cloth tote bag with "POA" printed.  

("POA" is translated as Cool in Swahili, but it also includes the acronym "Power of Africa".)

We're also inspired by all the activities Kangarui support.  They support activities to protect elephants from poaching through the NPO "Tear of African Elephant"  (https://www.taelephants.org).
