 The city government of Addis Ababa’s Productivity Improvement Center (PIC) was established to better equip the country’s workforce in the job market with practical and technical skills training.  The center offers a wide range of training to support professionals engaged in vocational and handicraft works.

At Felek, we are passionate about improving the quality of made in Ethiopia production and believe in the power of human centered design. Our expertise lies in not just making notebooks, but in using this design approach to create a wide range of leather, garment, and paper products for the market. Inspired by Ethiopia’s long history of producing handmade books, we draw from traditional artisanship and combine it with contemporary and eco-friendly designs to create unique and innovative products. Our ambition doesn’t stop at notebooks, as we have successfully produced quality leather bags and other products that reflect our commitment to improving the standard of made in Ethiopia production. We pride ourselves on our ability to serve multiple companies by custom producing products that meet their specific needs and exceed their expectations. At Felek, we are dedicated to using human centered design to not only create beautiful products, but to make a positive impact on the industry and our community.
