about us 1 - Closet 2 Closet Kenya

A long time ago..ok it feels like a long time ago, but it’s only been 2 years – so 2 years ago, I (Eva) gave birth to my daughter. I won’t even dive into how much of a blessing that has been, because I’m already super emotional right now as I count down to her 2nd birthday. But yeah, many of you know (or can imagine) how much your body changes after giving birth to a child – at least the first few months after. Your boobs are bursting with milk, your body is swollen with water (is it water docs?), your waist is thicker, it’s just a lot..and it wasn’t any different for me. So fast forward to the last moments of my maternity leave, I’m on panic mode! Nothing fits!

Obviously, I did the ‘sensible’ thing by going crazy with Instagram shopping..lol. New wrap tops, new high waist pants, new official dresses, new everything! What else was I supposed to do? What would YOU do? Stuff yourself into pants that you can’t zip up? Never!

The result? Daily morning workout session of pushing clothes from one side of my closet to the other just to find something to wear, which I did for months! This is not how I had pictured my journey towards Michelle Obama toned arms to be..nope. The truth was I had too many clothes in my closet (gasp!) and not all of them could fit me..so why did I have them? Sell them!

So on 6th August 2020, I created a new page on Instagram (@closet2closetke_store), took pictures of the clothes that were in good condition and posted, ran one ad and sold out of my batch by the next day – then sold out my sisters’ clothes, then a friend’s and a friend’s friend until we started reselling strangers’ clothes.

And here we are, 1 year later, with my sister and partner – Helen Kitheka and her OUTSTANDING organization skills leading the business operations, and SUPER-STYLISH Mary Kimani building our presence on social media, as we resell one closet at a time – for your profit 😉
