A bit about the tiny network of people, in two countries, who make it all happen:
Kanga Creative began early in 2011 by Rebecca McQueen, after returning from time living in Tanzania. A suitcase full of wonderful African fabrics and a passion for creative sewing led to the birth of her small business, named after her favourite piece of African baby carrying fabric, the kanga. Kanga Creative has now evolved to include a line of fun original children’s clothing in fabrics from around the world, especially South East Asia. Rebecca currently lives in Cambodia where she is volunteering at a Montessori school with her two year old son.
Kanga Creative’s online store would not be running if it weren’t for Rebecca’s lovely and generous friend Julie, who also has a passion for African fabrics. Julie is currently handling all online sales enquiries and orders from Western Australia.
All of our clothes are made by wonderfully talented tailors in a small production studio located in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We believe in fair working conditions for everyone, and are very happy that our ladies receive a fair wage, good working conditions, safe accommodation and hot meals every day.
