Sustainability Made Stylish

Sourcing local and eco-friendly materials is essential to our artisan community in Kenya and Tanzania. Materials such as grass, paper and recycled glass are used to create the strikingly beautiful pieces. Our recycled glass necklaces and earrings continue to be a favorite. Made from old glass and soda bottles.The bottles are broken into pieces, melted down to 580°C then shaped into beads of varying sizes. Each glass bead is shaped and formed by hand. The craftmanship of the jewelry create a delicate balance where beauty and sustainability meet.
