Building a meaningful relationship with our natural environment and embracing sustainable accessories is not just a fashion trend—it's a conscious choice that reflects our responsibility towards the planet and its inhabitants.
From women’s necklaces to unique statement designer bracelets, we created a collection that not only embraces sustainability but is an invitation to forge a harmonious connection with the natural world - a connection nurturing both our sense of style and responsibility. Each creation in this designer jewellery collection exudes the very essence of the continent, weaving together stories of tradition and modernity.
The Soulful Beauty of Sisal: Handwoven by Rwandan Artisans
Sisal, derived from the leaves of the 'agave sisalana' cactus plant, has been an integral part of Rwandan culture for generations. This natural fibre holds a special place in the hearts of skilled women weavers who have honed their craft over the years. These talented artisans transform sisal fibres into exquisite baskets, carpets, and traditional architectural pieces that reflect the essence of Africa.
With passion and precision passed down through generations, they skilfully hand weave the sisal discs featured at the heart of our Bongani women's necklaces, Kwasi women’s necklaces and our Kwaku designer rings.
The Timeless Allure of Brass: Sustainability Meets Elegance
As the sisal discs take shape, we embark on the next stage of our artisanal journey—the creation of hand-moulded brass settings in Kibera, Nairobi. Our commitment to sustainability drives us to source the brass from old padlocks that have served their purpose. Through a meticulous process of melting and moulding, we breathe new life into these discarded locks, infusing the metal with fresh vitality. It is through this process that we have also crafted our Askari designer bracelet, Zuri & Jani women's earrings.
A Symphony of Tradition and Modernity
By choosing these accessories, you are not only reducing your ecological footprint but also contributing to supporting artisans and communities that prioritise ethical and environmentally-friendly practices.
Let the Sisal & Brass Collection become a cherished part of your own narrative, an embodiment of the captivating journey threading cultures, craftsmanship, and hearts across the continent.
