Owner description: The most unique and trendy gifts in Malawi! All our items are lovingly hand-made in Dzaleka Refugee Camp, using vibrant African fabric and other local materials, as well as up cycling things like old jeans, plastic bottles and cereal boxes. Find us at the Artisan Shop in Old Town Mall, in the midst of gorgeous accessories and decor, all made by hand in Africa. Credit cards accepted. We also provide conference swag and other large-quantity custom orders - please email us or call us, we'd love to hear from you.

I love stopping by the Kibebe Malawi stand at the monthly farmer's market, even if I do not buy something. The staff are friendly and helpful. Their products are sturdy, practical and bring bursts of color into your home with their vibrant fabrics. My favorite is the picnic blanket that is patchwork denim on one side and African chitenge fabric on the other. Friends and family always rave about this gift.

Kibebe highlights the work of local artisans - if you are lucky you might see/meet them at work. They have a variety of handmade products - very useful, practical an thoughtful gifts. Kebab puts so much thoughts into their production - we were quite happy to have them provide us with a range of products for our Annual General Meeting - over 300 attendants went home with beautiful goodies from, soaps, candles, bags and clothing.

I highly recommend a visit, a sit down with the founder and artisans because buying their products is just too simple.

I love this spot! It is such a good place to find beautiful things for gifts and home, and they especially have a lot of cute baby items! Everything is made with a very high attention to detail, and is made by artisans from Dzaleka Refugee Camp. Beautiful products that are innovative and resourceful!
