The furniture store

Today I have a guest photographer - Josh Cadd. He and his family moved to Nairobi about six months ago. Part of getting settled meant buying furniture. This is the shop they chose. It's part of the "jua kali" sector of businesses. That's Swahili for "hot sun" - the craftsmen work under the hot sun without any roof over their heads.

So many of the jua kali guys' products are beautiful.

I'm loving these pictures. I'm going to remember "jua kali". Summers in Texas are all about Jua Kali. The Furniture is wonderful.

Keep the pictures coming.

Thank you! I'm from Kenya and have grown up seeing these hard working people working and sweating hard under the sun, all day.I prefer buying from them or getting custom made products by them. Am glad some people really appreciate it. My husband(he's European) was also very impressed when he saw how these young kenyans are working hard under some unpleasant conditions and it really touched me. You've inspired me to appreciate them even more. Thanks. Shirley.

Simply beautiful. These are hard working Kenyans who deserve thumbs up for their hard work and dedication despite all the challenges they have especially the "hot sun" conditions. Let us promote the "Jua Kali Sector" Thanks.
