We work with artisan groups to bring you high-quality, unique black and white jewellery. Inspired by Swahili architecture along the coast of East Africa, our handmade pieces are crafted from bone and horn, sourced from trash.
In Kiswahili, ‘kazi’ means ‘work’. We aim to bring new work for artisans; and to work hard to bring sustainable jewellery to a wider market while minimising our environmental impact.
The black and white contrast in our work reflects our wider philosophy. We believe in being grateful for contrast, difference, and diversity. The dark allows us to see the light.
We hope that each piece brings you happiness, and reminds you to appreciate the contrasts and contradictions in life, like the calm of the ocean breeze colliding with the bustling coastline.
We invite you to join the journey. Each quality piece of jewellery is beautifully crafted, made with simplicity and sustainably sourced.
When we met in Kenya in 2016, we had many discussions about sustainability in the fashion industry. At the same time, we saw that many skilled artisans had an abundance of skill, and yet few opportunities to supply different markets.
We wanted to change this, bringing our contacts together and tapping our artistic qualities to create new markets for a unique type of product.
We both have a passion for creating something sustainable, that doesn’t add to our environmental challenges but instead aims to transform trash, into something beautiful. This is an ethic shared by our artisans at Victorious Craft Group, who have for many years, been turning trash into a stunning array of jewellery.
Together, we hope to bring you something that is different, bold, beautiful and yet sustainable. We believe that by being conscious of what we buy, we can take steps towards creating a better world.
We believe that the fashion industry has huge potential to drive positive social and economic change throughout supply chains around the world. Our ethical approach aims to improve the lives of the communities who supply them, while taking strides to improve our environment.
