The objects represented in the Twiga Gallery are as diverse and vast as the African continent itself. These authentic ancient art pieces embrace and energize those who visit the gallery searching for new worldly experience. Take a trip abroad without going far from home and visit the gallery to experience the hospitality extended to all that visit.
Twiga's success with jewelry design lead her pieces to be featured at such stores as Saks Fifth Avenue, Takashimaya, Ultimo, and The Gift Shop at the Field Museum in Chicago. Twiga has been profiled in American and Japanese Vogue, Architectural Digest, Essence, San Francisco Chronicle, and San Francisco Magazine to name a few.
Twiga was the first person from her village to venture abroad. Back home, her neighbors still live without electricity, running water or cars. Medical supplies and hospitals are limited. Her hope is to inspire them to venture out and see beyond their immediate surroundings. She is an active participant in improving the living conditions in Tanzania. As it is written on her business card, "When you purchase something from Twiga, you are directly helping to build health clinics, nutrition centers and schools in Tanzania." This represents her greatest pride.
