About my venture
At Ecodunia, we make leather wallets lined with African fabrics and reusable grocery bags with colorful African prints. We sell to the socially conscious consumer who is looking for products that are ethically made, sustainably sourced, and that empower Black communities.
As a Black immigrant, and now American citizen, I want Ecodunia to be a bridge between my two communities - my Kenyan roots and my newer, American community.
