    Kilimanjaro is the name of our store which is located in Cincinnati, Ohio. We have been in operation here since 1986. We are devoted exclusively to collecting and selling African Art and other products. Along with African Art from different regions of the Continent we also carry a large selection of African clothing for the entire family, jewelry, fabric, books, music and musical instruments.

    Mbindyo (TITUS) Nzioki, the owner of the store is a wood caver who was born and raised in a small woodcarving village of Wamunyu in eastern Kenya. His father Nzioki Mutweia and grandfather Mutweia Itaa were woodcarvers. Titus spent his early years working with his father at a family gallery in Nairobi and later worked in various galleries in The Netherlands and Switzerland before coming to the US. Titus travels to Africa every year to buy and collect new products for the store.

    OUR MISSION is to share our heritage with the rest of the world. Providing a reasonable outlet for the artists to market their products without the common exploitation that is associated with sweatshops.
