About us

Founded 10 years ago by Lucy Macnamara when she visiting Kenya and fell in love with no only the country but also by the beautiful hand beaded sandals she found the locals making, she knew that she had found something truly special.

Lucy felt that this beautiful artistry needed to be shared with the world. So, she established Aspiga, setting out to stimulate the economies of talented artisans, and provide beautiful, quality, handmade goods to an international customer base.

Each year, we strive to grow our collections, building off from previous years success to create a product line that embraces modern femininity. We love pieces made from natural fibers that feature vibrant colors, with lots of hand embroidered or beaded embellishment.

Today, we are an established travel brand; selling day, evening and beachwear, along with swimwear and accessories. The majority of our product line is our own Aspiga brand, but we can never resist selling some of the wonderful designer brands that Lucy comes across on her travels!
