Made necklace

Here’s an exciting new accessories brand offering an on trend collection of chunky necklaces, jangly earrings, leather and metal bracelets and some beautiful pure leather handbags.

Not only have they been collaborating with some of the biggest names in fashion – including Louis Vuitton, ASOS and Whistles – they pride themselves on promoting edgy, emerging talent from Britain and around the world.

Their pieces are all Fairtrade, and made in their purpose built workshop in Kenya. “Our workshop in Kenya was founded in 2005 with a view to harnessing the talent and skills of artisans in Kenya, whilst providing a safe working environment, long-term job security and training. Since then we have grown to employ over 60 men and women.

“From highly skilled craftsmen and women to novices eager to learn, our goal is to create sustainable jobs, teach new skills and empower developing communities in Kenya through the production of beautiful, unique and highly covetable accessories. We believe that by investing in our team we are not only acting responsibly but we are also able to create the best product possible.” Here here.
