Art Warembo Wasanii members turn junk into fashionMembers of Warembo Wasanii created their fashions out of plastic wrappers collected from trash dumps & upcycled into designer costumes. PHOTO | MARGARETTA WA GACHERUWarembo Wasanii isn’t just the place in Kariobangi North where Joan Otieno trains young women off the street to be environmentalists, concerned about cleaning up their garbage-strewn city. Landmark also has a Plaza in K-North, which is where Joan moved her Warembo Wasanii. Joan’s studio is an open house of sorts where young women come, having heard of her good works by word of mouth. But since she’s been at Landmark, she’s generated her own group of blossoming ‘junk’ artist-designers.
