The concept for Muzungu Sisters was born in 2009, when founders and friends, Dana Alikhani and Tatiana Santo Domingo, were living in New York. Dana, finishing a master's degree in human rights at Columbia University, wanted to create an online retail portal that would promote fair labour practices by showcasing artisan-crafted goods. Tatiana, with a refined eye for style and a keen interest in travel, had been thinking of curating a website that would feature carefully sourced items discovered during her adventures abroad.
By merging their ideas and passions, Dana and Tatiana created the revolutionary concept of providing the global online retail market with exclusive products handcrafted in a sustainable manner, by local artisans from diverse cultures.
A scarf like this breezy cotton style from Muzungu Sisters is an accessory essential. Loved for its endless beach to city versatility, we also love that it was crafted by hand in Indonesia and helps to support the brand's mission in reviving and sustaining the world's artisans.
