We cater to conscious fashionistas by providing eco-friendly jewellery
Made from banana fibre, brass beads and accessories and ceramic beads. We cater to Conscious fashionistas by offering sustainable jewellery made from banana fibre. Our product addresses three issues: the environment, rural women unemployment, and preserving indigenous sustainable cultures by using them as Inspiration for our jewellery e.g basket weaving and rope twisting.
Our Mission is to create equal opportunities for women in rural areas by empowering them through indigenous craftsmanship with natural resources that are available to them.
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, drying and weaving of the jewellery. This has provided an opportunity for women in the rural homes 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.
