Fomi Collection: Ethiopian Designs That Create Dignity Through Work
The vision behind Fomi is to create uniquely beautiful leather handbags and shoes that are locally sourced and handcrafted in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We have adopted a simple yet sustainable approach to business in which employees receive fair wages, safe working conditions and an opportunity to advance their skill sets.

The larger objective is to create lasting economic change in Ethiopia by moving beyond the concept of charity, and instead focusing on providing opportunities that create pride and dignity through work.
