Uzuri, meaning ‘Goodness’ in Swahili is a newly-opened gift shop in Labone
that stocks a wide variety of beaded sandals, woven handbags, kikoy cloth, earrings and decorative beaded pieces all sourced from Kenya.
It’s owner, and true entrepreneur Caroline Ochieng, who has brought with her a bit of East Africa to West Africa opened shop in August this year. Through word-of-mouth she now sees a lot of referred customers but also people curiously venturing in just to look – perhaps drawn by the bold Swahili name. Uzuri’s beaded sandals have now become ubiquitous among many of Caroline’s customers, yet still retain a certain charm of originality for each new pair you see. A great place for gifts when looking for something a bit different from the usual fare to be found in curio and gift shops in Accra.
