The Samburu have to relocate every 5 to 6 weeks to ensure their cattle can feed themselves. They are independent and egalitarian people, much more traditional than the Masaai. Their society has depended on cattle and warfare for so long that they find it hard to change to a more sedentary lifestyle.
The Rabari women dedicate long hours to embroidery, a vital and evolving expression of their crafted textile tradition. They also manage the hamlets and all money matters while the men are on the move with the herds. The livestock, wool, milk and leather, is their main source of income.

The Equi textiles are a range of 3D surfaces made using high tech metallic fabrics from Switzerland. The materials are folded into a chevron pattern using a process called pleating which is primarily used within the garment industry. The collection was first shown in 2014 at Designjunction during the London Design Festival and we are now exploring a range of applications.
