Leather Wrap Bracelet
Handmade women in deaf communities in Kenya. Employment with our partner creates an opportunity for these women to take care of their families and show the world that they can do everything hearing people can do. Though these women are brilliant in mind and spirit their limited abilities to communicate often leave them alienated from their communities and unable to find traditional forms of employment.
With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the U.S. National Parks.
Historians have found the first signs of jewelry ever being worn in Africa, almost 75,000 years ago. When it comes to creating jewelry, Africans will use everything they have access to. For this reason, African jewelry can be made out of a wide variety of materials, from bone and shells to animal teeth and hair. Throughout history, jewelry-making has been the preserve of women, with mothers teaching their daughters how to create pieces.
