Meet Teta Isibo Founder, Creative Director and CEO Of Inzuki Designs
Inzuki Designs was founded by Rwandan designer Teta Isibo in 2012. Specializing in jewellery, accessories, and interior décor, all pieces are hand-made using local materials.
Fusing traditional craftsmanship and contemporary style, Inzuki Design’s philosophy seeks to transcend traditional Rwandan design, customizing it to suit modern needs.
Working with local artisans to create contemporary pieces, Inzuki Designs considers the brand part of a wider Rwandan cultural renaissance.
“I’m part of a lucky generation of young Rwandans who have the opportunity to create our own reality and not feel held back because of the genocide,” said the designer, speaking to The New York Times. “I see a future for us that’s bright, and one where fashion thrives.”
Inzuki designs was created out of a combined passion for design, style and everything Rwandan. It started out as a hobby creating personalized jewelry inspired by already existing products on the Rwandan crafts market and working with local craftswomen to produce them. In 2010 Inzuki designs officially evolved into a business entity. It has since grown into a renown Rwandan brand with a boutique located in the Heart of Kigali City. Inzuki is now aiming for International markets and will soon be accessible to clients in the rest of Africa, Europe, Asia and North America through distributors and an online store.
