We’re excited to be collaborating with Ambica Shah, and her fantastic feather creations, for our Take Flight chapter! Ambica grew up in Kenya and spent most of her childhood on safari developing a deep fondness for nature and its vivid colours.

Founded by Ambica in 2010, Kapoeta Designs is a luxury collection of handmade feather jewelry and accessories inspired by her travels through Spain, Morocco and India. The name Kapoeta (pronounced ‘Ka-po-eh-tah’) comes from South Sudan, a place that conveys mystical and magical elements. An African eco- fashion brand, Kapoeta Designs supports ethical and sustainable sourcing, production and design.
