We visited it shortly before we left Nairobi and really stocked up on some absolutely fabulous presents for all and sundry and some beautiful things for ourselves. Prices were far from being extravagant but no bargaining ! Take your time: there are SO many rooms !

Spinner's Web has a selection of Kenyan arts and crafts. It is very well displayed in many rooms. I was looking for a particular style of basket of which they only had one. However, they had several similar ones in which they displayed smaller items. They were willing to sell me the display baskets at a reduced rate due to... More

Visited today with our daughter and found all the treasures we wanted as gifts for those back home. Prices were in general better than any of the markets we have previously visited. The building is just new and so not all of the stock was unpacked but we found plenty to search out. Each area is dedicated to different craftsmen... More

I shopped here during my last visit to Nairobi. They have a great assortment of items and gifts. There is a wide range of prices.

We are in Nairobi after a safari and needed to get some gifts for people back home. This was the place! We found affordable but well made gifts for everyone on our list. They had fun jewelry, art, kitchen gift items as well as different animal items from what you find everywhere else. Great little place! Plus, they packed it... More

This place was a pleasant surprise. It's very nicely laid out in a old house with a very cool courtyard-coffee shop. For anyone looking for souvenirs (textiles, books, masks, furniture, small magnets) I will highly recommend visiting spinners web. The place is pricey and you can probably get lower quality but similar products outside - but if you have limited... More

Perhaps this is the place to find the better quality and more authentic staff. A good selection and variety without the hassle and poignant pressure from unscrupulous vendors. An oasis in Nairobi with a quaint coffe shop in the middle of it all

Spinners web is filled with Kenyan handicraft. Textile, wood, metal and other materials. Decorarional items and things for daily use. Feel free to stroll and look around without somebody stressing you to buy. We are regular guests here! Oh, by the way! The small cafe served delocious carrot cake!!!
