Rui Yamashita is the artist behind Kangarui. She was born in Japan, raised in Kenya and her life experiences are reflected in each of her designs. A quirky fusion style, filled with colour and often with animals found in East Africa, she wishes to spread her safari love around the world.

Her passion has always been to get dirty and be creative by exploring all sorts of materials and tools, playing heavily with layers. Her designs were sold at Urban Outfitters, Target, BHG, Houzz, and many other stores worldwide, before she launched her own brand in September 2016.
