We are IKURU, an ethical fashion label based in Pemba, Mozambique that uses beautiful African print fabrics for its designs. We are a small team with a big dream. IKURU means "strength" in the local language, and empowering women through fashion is at the heart of the IKURU Project.
IKURU empowers women from vulnerable backgrounds by investing in professional training, creating job opportunities and providing social & health benefits at work, to support both the women and their communities.
Our designs blend the colourful African fabrics with a modern style to create two trendy women’s lines, a prêt-a-porter collection and a Designer’s collection, and fun and simple kids’ and men’s lines. By fusing African prints with Western styles, we hope to connect the artisans with our customers across the globe through our handmade clothing, each garment signed by the seamstress who made it.
IKURU believes that as consumers, we can make a difference through our choices. Your support helps to bring about positive change in this community. We hope you love our IKURU product as much as we do. Kuchukuro and thank you.
