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). We are open 10am - 5pm, Monday thru Friday.
KANZI is a fair trade, social business whose mission is to create sustainable sources of income for East African artisans and communities. KANZI supports East African artisans through fair trade practices on their goods bought and sold. 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!
