We cater to Conscious fashionistas by offering eco-friendly jewellery.
Our product addresses three issues: the environment, rural women unemployment, and preserving indigenous sustainable cultures.
We have implemented a circular business model to assist us in our efforts to protect the environment. We make jewellery out of banana fibre, which is extracted from the banana stem. Our manufacturing process begins with the harvesting of the stem, followed by the extraction of the fibre and the weaving of the jewellery. This has provided an opportunity for women in my rural home of Busia, whom we train in jewellery weaving for economic empowerment; we work with farmers from whom we purchase the banana stem. We also collaborate with artisans in Nairobi to co-create the brass accessories we use to complete the jewellery.
our product helps uphold the traditional craftsmanship culture of basket weaving by repurposing it and using it as the inspiration behind our jewellery.
