Meet The Team | Abigail

We are lucky enough to have a really fantastic team here at Artisans & Adventurers, and we thought it was time you got to know everyone a little bit better! This week we are getting to know Abigail...

What is your role with A&A and how long have you been part of the team?
My role is the Online Visual Merchandiser at A&A, and have been working from home for the last year to keep the website looking beautiful and fresh, along with many other things. I've been with A&A for almost 4 years now. 
Tell us 3 fun facts about you!

Three fun facts about me are, I do taekwando in my spare time, and in my spare spare time I paint graphic t-shirts for my friends and family. I am doing a masters in disasters adaptation and development, and am learning a lot about climate change and how we can work together across the world to build better future for everyone. 

Who is your biggest inspiration?

My biggest inspiration at the minute has to be comedian Munya Chawawa for his hilarious satirical videos on the news.

What is your dream travel destination?

I would love to visit Cuba and revisit Uganda- such a beautiful green country with amazing people- but will have to get out the factor 50! 

What is your favourite A&A product & why?

My favourite A&A product is the crocodile mamba rug from the amazing Julius in Nairobi. I love the incredible design from Amy and it's so well made. 

What 1 piece of advice would you give to help others live more sustainably / ethically?

One piece of advise I would give to people to live more sustainably and ethically is to learn as much about other people as you can. Climate change is already impacting people all over the world and we can only change this through coordination and a shared passion for change. We've got this!
