KANZI is Birmingham's newest fair trade store! We are located at 2817 Central Avenue, Homewood, AL 35209 (across from Iron Tribe, by Little Donkey Restaurant). Store Hours: Monday-Saturday, 10am-5pm.


KANZI is a fair trade, social business whose mission is to create sustainable sources of income for East African artisans and communities. We supports and promotes East African artisans with fair trade prices for goods sold internationally. Profits from the sale of these goods also go back directly to support orphaned children in Uganda and to Ugandan community building.

Kanzi means "hidden treasure" in Swahili. At KANZI, we are passionate about offering quality goods for our customers, giving dignity to artisans, and creating sustainability in the communities we source products from. Karibu! ("Welcome!") Come and celebrate East African culture with us!
