In Kitengela, just outside Nairobi, Kenya. In a vibrant artists' workshop, bottles are recycled to give life to furniture and different works of art.

But in that wonderful process, some small pieces of glass did not find their place and were discarded. At Lamu, we decided to give them love and a new purpose, a new beginning. It is as if each shard of glass has been waiting to become part of something as special as our “Upendo” Collection.

The shades in the collection have not been chosen at random, they all tell a story.

Amber speaks of eternal sunsets over the plains of the Masai Mara, green pays tribute to Mount Kenya and the rolling hills of Ngong, while turquoise and navy blue tones capture the essence of Mombasa's paradisiacal beaches and the majesty of the ocean. Indian that caresses the coasts of Kenya.

We invite you to be the protagonist in this love story, because each piece of “Upendo” that you choose not only adorns your body, it also beautifies your soul, filling it with a little piece of our love and respect for this magical place and its people.

While the wind whispers delicately and the earth exhales its fragrance, the Upendo Collection continues writing its own story, waiting for you to join it too.
