Our jewellery is inspired by traditional African design, interpreted for the modern woman.
Using raw materials that are sourced ethically from Kenya, we ensure each piece is traceable, from design to delivery.
Brass is an alloy composed of copper and zinc. It is both a practical and precious metal, and makes for an ethical alternative to gold.
Brass has long been used in Africa in jewellery and art. Famous pieces include the Benin Bronzes, and the Bronze Heads of Ife and Queen Idia.
All of our brass is recycled, poured and hammered by hand. It’s nickel, lead and cadmium free – we make sure contaminants are removed in the recycling and purification process.
We use surplus dead-stock leather in our pendants and trinket trays.
Our glass seed beads are selected for their quality and complete recyclability.
We use recycled fibres from flour and rice sacks as thread for our beading.
For additional components such as fastenings and chains, we use 14ct gold fill, a higher quality form of gold plating.
Our reclaimed cow horn is sourced from local farms, which would otherwise be thrown away.
