YEARS OF
PARTNERSHIP
Our Kenyan styles are created by talented metalworkers living in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. Artisans in Kenya have long been renowned for creating beautiful brass pieces. By harnessing these local craft traditions, the Artisan Entrepreneurs we partner with are creating dignified jobs for people in a vulnerable community—all while preserving their unique cultural heritage.

Brass

In creating items for our collection, Kenyan Artisans use recycled brass from padlocks and other unwanted items to craft accessories that are elegant and friendly to the environment. By harnessing traditional brass casting and hammering techniques, the Artisans craft one-of-a-kind accessories with a timeless beauty.
