Our Story

My name is Aidah and my daughter Nina is the inspiration behind the name NinaNest. I was born and raised in Kenya and later moved to the US. I started NinaNest as a way to reconnect my young daughter with a part of her culture and heritage that I had grown up with - I wanted her to appreciate the beauty of Africa.

Our mission is to bring you beautifully crafted home décor pieces that not only add a touch of elegance to your living spaces but also make a positive impact on the lives of artisans around the world. We work closely with a group of talented women artisans who use their expertise to create these stunning pieces. By supporting this all-women co-op, we are not only preserving ancient craftsmanship but also empowering these artisans and their communities and villages.

Whether you are looking for a special gift for a loved one or a unique treat for yourself, we invite you to explore our collection. All our products are handmade, and they celebrate creations of amazing places and people. It is my hope that every gift that comes to you brings you inspiration and makes you feel the magic of faraway cultures
With Love,
