CREATING IMPACT THROUGH FASHION & INTERIOR DESIGN
Welcome to VAST, the story of life that takes form in the meeting of two beautiful and contrasting worlds.
We are a Kenyan lifestyle brand sourcing material from across East Africa and working with small-scale artisans to produce high-quality, handcrafted and upcycled designs in the spirit of conscious living.
We draw inspiration from the endless warmth, vibrancy and buzz of the African continent and design with a contemporary western approach. We create in consideration, celebration and preservation of craft, culture and tradition.
At VAST, we aren’t about chasing trends. We’re about creating the timeless.
THE CREATIVE SISTERS BEHIND VAST
Living in Kenya, being Swedish and travelling across Africa has instilled in us the ability to draw inspiration from every culture and adapt it into designs that celebrate our interconnectedness. We want VAST to be an embodiment of this lifestyle, connecting the world with Africa through materials, processes and ethics that support the wellbeing of all.
As sisters with different personalities, we collaborate with our artisan team, each bringing forth unique views, skills and experience. Together, we work in an open, endlessly creative process that leads us to push boundaries and create without limit.
My love for garments led me into the high-end fashion industry, working and learning alongside talented designers. During my University years studying in the sciences, I became aware and concerned with the importance of creating a sustainable future. I now use these experiences to create unique, diverse and inspired designs with a special focus on sustainability.
I’ve spent nearly the last decade designing homes across Africa after my studies at the University of Arts London. I’ve adopted a style that blends African and Western design to create spaces that inspire comfort and connection. Each project is a highly personalized experience, honouring our clients’ individual needs and values to create authentic living spaces.
