Frequently Asked Questions

We value questions over answers.

Kwanini? is the Swahili word (language widely spoken in Eastern African countries) for “why”, but it's more than just a question. Kwanini? is a socially conscious fashion brand which integrates intellectual curiosity with style to cultivate your mind.

We help to create sustainable jobs for local artisans and businesses for each of our eco-friendly products made in Africa. 5% of the proceeds from each purchase you make is donated back to Africa to support the education of children in rural villages. So not only do you educate yourself by wearing Kwanini?, you are also empowering the dreams of a child.

Part of the proceeds are donated to a non-profit organization operating in the villages of Tanzania. The progress and impact you help us make will be updated on our website and social media so stay tuned.

We are launching with our 100% organic cotton signature tees, but stay tuned for more new products coming soon including our Olubugo Collection and African inspired jewelry and accessories.
