The idea was to sell cards online, but could not help thinking of my precious mum and her precious skills. She is multi talented from crochet, knitting, to embroidery and more, which I learned it from her. I came up with idea to her and practically begged her to join me. I first thought of making accessories for children and it all took from there. Thanks to my mum for being brave to embrace my idea, and my family for always being there when help needed, now Nyoki products include clothes for children, hair accessories and cards and is running successfully for almost 2 years.
Nyoki Handmade products are designed in London and handmade in both London and Kosovo. We are very proud to be working closely with job creation programs in Kosovo, giving female survivors of the war the confidence and financial means to support themselves and their families. Every time someone buys one of our products, they are helping to rebuild the lives of these women and their families.
Inspiration came from the childhood. We come from Kosovo and handmade crafting is a tradition. We were raised mostly with handmade clothes and our homes were decorated mostly with things made by ourselves. I learned crafting from my mum; my mum learned it from her mum, grandma learned it from hers and my daughter who is only 5 is learning it from me. It is something that we pass on - so we thought why not pass it as a gift to someone that we don't know. So this is how we gave birth to NYOKI.
