About Us

The Inspiration Behind Kenum

Kenum, the name, is inspired by an ancient Egyptian god, Khnum, who was known to bring creativity and prosperity to our ancient selves.

More about Kenum, the god: he was regarded as one of the first Egyptian gods related to not just creativity but he has also been linked to being the source of the Nile, our source of living up to this day. It was believed that he used his potter's wheel and Egyptian clay to create and mold other ancient Egyptian gods.

Fun trivia: the temple of Elephantine Island in Aswan, one that most of us have visited, was dedicated to him.

Kenum The Brand

Much like the name it's inspired by, Kenum today also uses authentic Egyptian clay to provide you with wheel thrown pieces that are both organic and sustainable. Our Logo is another representation of our Egyptian roots. It includes Egyptian sign language that stands for WOMEN and POWER.
