Mali Safi – A common Swahili term used to describe high quality
Mali Safi is a documentary showcasing Kenyan fashion through the lens of sustainable techniques and processes. The film documents Grace Ndunge as she discovers new techniques and processes to adopt for her fashion brand, Zaqara Kenya.
Mali Safi is ultimately about African creatives rooting their work in authentic experiences, celebrating their heritage and telling their own stories, rather than relying on Western concepts and ideas that are handed down to them.
