INKUGE Art, a Rwandan artisanal shoe company, was founded in 2016 by Kwizera Alphonse. The company was established when the Rwandan government encouraged citizens to rely on their own resources and stop using secondhand clothes. Before starting INKUGE Art, Kwizera used to sell secondhand clothes but was inspired to utilize his talent and make his own shoes.
With a shortage of skilled shoemakers in Rwanda, Kwizera saw an opportunity to create a unique product that would appeal to Rwandans. INKUGE Art specializes in Rasta designs but can cater to customers’ needs. They focus on using leather and recycled tires to minimize their impact on the environment.
Customers can find INKUGE Art’s products in Gikondo at Rujugira or purchase them online at www.rwandamart.rw.
