SOME WORDS ABOUT US

We're crazy about design and locally made products.

When we started

We met in architecture school and started Erregatti a few years later in 2017. We currently work on several projects, but our flagship product is the handmade leather journals that brought you here. ūüėÉ

Why the Journals?

We noticed that most of the books used by our peers were imported. Kenya has a lot to offer the world, and we decided that it was time to do something about it.  This is how the leather journals were born.

About Us

Started by a noisy group of friends in 2018 who met at university studying Architecture.

Erregatti is a company created by a group of Kenyan youth who are passionate about art, design and architecture and the handmade journals are one of their flagship products.

All books are made by hand, from the preparation of the locally sourced leather to the hand-tearing of each piece of paper, parallel to its grain, so as to give it the deckled edge that complements the cover when bound.

Through the purchase of these journals, you support a whole team of Kenyan youth, from the people involved in the stitching of each journal to those that cut the leather and deal with the design, sourcing and delivery of both materials and the finished products.

About Erregatti, by Chams Media

I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
