About us

Trio Craft Plc was started in Kenya in 1983 by Elizabeth Kassa, a businesswoman whose background was as a social worker.

She wanted to help single mothers and decided to start Trio Craft as a vehicle to help empower women with opportunities. Elizabeth bought a table loom and taught herself how to weave, she then installed two full-sized looms in her garage and hired the first two single mothers. From these humble beginnings, she eventually expanded to employ over 100 workers by the time she left Nairobi Kenya in 2004. Trio craft’s high standard for quality and customer satisfaction resulted in supplying textiles and carpets for the high-end five-star hotels in East Africa countries such as Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. Four of her former employees have opened their own weaving companies, Trio Craft in Nairobi, Kenya is still thriving and continuing the tradition of excellence. In 2004 Elizabeth built a five-story factory and started a Trio Craft in Addis Ababa Ethiopia.
