Our story

Made in Kenya, loved around the world.

Katush is an everyday superhero — a conscious and compassionate leisure lifestyle brand, made in Africa for the confident, reflective, self-aware global citizen who values quality, versatility and sustainability in original design.

Every collection starts with curiosity, a lens through which the continent’s rich and inspiring heritage is explored and framed. The subject settled on is swept into Katush’s considered process, carried through as prints and design features on simple, contemporary silhouettes that embody modern ease.

A skilled community of makers brings each piece to life in Kenya, keeping traditional craftwork alive and training in any technique needed to tell a season’s story.

We also work with artisan communities across Africa, like our hand-woven cotton partners in Burkina Faso.

Meet the maker

Designer Katungulu Mwendwa’s approach to design can be described as a curious sceptic’s review of the perceptions of Kenyan, African and female identity and how resulting definitions — often imposed instead of self-defined — attempt to ringfence creative expression.
