About Mary

Poet of the natural world, Mary Oliver most often wrote about intimate encounters with her environment. Critics denounced her ‘simple’ style and accused her of pandering to popular audiences but Mary remained unfazed. As a result her poetry has called out from the wild spaces to academics and housewives alike.


Why we name our boxes

When we started Karibu, we knew we wanted our gifts to be about more than just great products. So we thought long and hard about all the best gifts we had ever received and what connected them all. Very quickly we realised that behind every great gift is a good story, a meaning. And so, we decided that each box should have a name that captured the spirit of the box. The result, we hope, is gifts that are as thoughtful as their givers.
