Matamart Africa is your authentic connection to African jewelry, accessories and goods. MATA (Mom-and-Tot Africa) brand, was originated as a way to engage our young children (Brianna and Elijah) in cultural awareness and provide a way to connect them with their Kenyan heritage and background. Serah (Mom), a registered nurse, was born and raised in Kenya, East Africa. She was raised in a family that owned and operated a “duka”, a small family owned store where they sold vegetables.  Bryan (Dad) is a US Army veteran who has served in Desert Storm and was stationed at different Army bases around the world. He currently works as a teacher and educator.

Matamart seeks to be the leader in fair trade whose mission is to re-invest in the global community by investing in local individuals. We will always maintain fair values. We promote creativity in our participants and also give back to the community by donating to charities and supporting missions for humanity. We are honored to host tours to Kenya where we can introduce others to the uniqueness of Kenya and continue to grow in our mission.
