Eldoret is a big city in the West of Kenya, famous for the world famous runners who come from this area. We stopped here to get our new Carnet de Passage stamped – it turned out it was not necessary, we can do that when leaving Kenya, and to extend our Visa, which is still in progress after a week since we applied, but we were informed we can travel on anyway.
While sorting all that out, we stayed at a nice campsite outside of town called Naiberi Camp. There we saw some knitwear and enquired about it. Turns out the owners of the campsite also run a knitting factory in town. We were invited to visit it, which we did with delight.
Acryl is imported from Indonesia and died at the factory as needed. A big part of the production are jumpers as part of the school uniforms, but also Masai Shukra and blankets are woven here.
We had enjoyed our visit to the factory, what an interesting insight and we especially had enjoyed the hospitality of Raj. We wish him all the best for the inauguration of the temple!
