Hello everyone. I'm Chitsu Nakamoto, representative of RICCI EVERYDAY.
RICCI EVERYDAY is a lifestyle brand that manufactures and sells bags and miscellaneous goods made of colorful and playful African prints (fabric) and sustainable materials.
Uganda's local market is lined up with a number of shops with novel design and colorful African plints, and there are many works that are full of craftsmen and artists.
When I first visited, I looked for my favorite cloth as if I was looking for a treasure.
Recently, we are making manufacturing that makes use of the characteristic materials with craftsmen with various techniques, as well as African plints. I met the craftsmen who are scattered in Uganda and are working to make their passion, and they were further drawn into the charm of Uganda's manufacturing.
RICCI EVERYDAY offers excitement and surprises to customers with the design of the product through various encounters in Uganda.
Encounter with a Uganda woman
I met a single mother in Uganda four years ago in Uganda.
Uganda is very difficult to find a stable working mouth.
At that time, she had only the amount of money below Uganda's average income, and could not make the children go to school satisfactorily. She had a strong remorse for her that she wasn't educated.
Uganda is very difficult for young people to get a decent job, with a employment rate of about 20-30%, even though they are out of the prestigious university. It is difficult for women who have not received higher education to get a job, and people who sell foods on the roadside to live while raising children, or work in poor environments at low wages as factories. Was almost.
About RICCI EVERYDAY initiatives
Wouldn't it be nice if there was a place where women could work with peace of mind in response to such reality? I want to create an environment where women can blossom the talents of women and live a richer life through their work. With that in mind, I launched RICCI EVERYDAY.
The first single -mother woman I met became the first employee of the Company, and now seven years later, all the children go to school, and the house that was previously surrounded by brick -exposed walls. I was able to see a big change, such as being firmly reinforced with concrete.
And seeing her self -confidence in being our staff is my motivation for this business.
In addition, I met Uganda's proud paper beads, up -cycle leather craftsmen, Berk Cross craftsmen using wooden skin, spread their manufacturing in Japan and the world, and connect with many people. I wanted to make it, so I took a step towards more chapters.
Currently, Uganda is operated by 17 people (production staff: 15, Admin work: 2), and Japan is operated by 10 staff members (mostly marketing teams).
We procure raw materials mainly in Uganda and Ghana, sew in Uganda's directly managed studio, and export the final processed products produced by craftsmen in various fields to Japan.
Products are sold mainly at our own online store, RICCI EVERYDAY THE HILL Kagurazaka Showroom, and pop -up stores and select shops at major department stores nationwide.
