Beautiful fair trade jewellery from Kenya

by Andrew Williams | July 28, 2014

We're delighted to be stocking this lovely range of jewellery from the Bombolulu workshop in Mombasa, Kenya. The workshop employs over 160 people, and is a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation.

The workshop was founded in 1969 as a rehabilitation centre, and offers residential housing on site for its workers, who live with a range of different disabilities. The quality of the work they produce is testament to the trainings and skills they are provided with as part of the Bombolulu programme.

  

The designs have a contemporary feel and give a modern twist to traditional African designs. Many designs use silver plate which contrasts beautifully with the brass used in most of the pieces.

As well as a range of earrings, we also stock necklaces and bracelets made by the workshops.

   

These new pieces are a fantastic showcase of a great supplier, and we are proud and delighted to be stocking them.
