out of respect for the planet & all of us who live on it.


Each Lilabare piece stems from our mission of zero-waste & preserving handcraft. Sourcing post-production industry excess that is borne of ancient spinning & dyeing techniques, we bring each piece to life in Kenya alongside small scale artisans in our atelier in Nairobi.

Head on over to our lookbooks to see the collection-specific statistics on how many handcrafted and waste resources were used for each collection.


This is Ben, our Master Tailor. He is responsible for turning design sketches and measurements into actual garments. When he first joined, he was "used to doing just a few designs, but now I know so much more which is exciting. I feel supported at Lilabare, and I know I am well taken care of here".  To us, knowing that our team is cared for and feel appreciated is necessary in order for us to celebrate our work every day. If you have any questions about our team, please ask us!  You can also check out the  Sustainability Stats  on each of our collections, which calculate the direct impact the clothes make on the environment.

“Separating ourselves from society's conventional idea of a "dream wardrobe"… Whilst we have always been told that the ideal is to have an endless closet; Lilabare is about creating a flexible wardrobe filled with timeless, functional & versatile pieces that you can wear through as many Vogue issues as they make.
