Mitumba Art Limited is an arts and crafts company based in Nanyuki situated on the Northern Slopes of Mt Kenya, in the Laikipia region of Northern Kenya. The company specialises in recycling second hand “Mitumba” clothes, making them into various beautiful, hand decorated soft furnishings and other apparel.

We are based in a workshop on the aptly named Lunatic Lane in Nanyuki. The ethos of Mitumba Art is to provide gainful employment to the local youth who otherwise would struggle to find suitable employment. The company trains and employs artists and crafts people from the local area.
Mitumba Art makes a wide range of original and bespoke beautifully painted and beaded cushion covers, table runners, table mats, lampshades, cards and beaded jewellery.
The company also creates bespoke soft furnishings and curtains to order. Mitumba Art also buys second hand designer clothes, cleans and repairs them, then markets the quality items locally.
