The Waterfall Earrings are the perfect fair trade statement piece!
The Kenya Collection is handmade by fairly-paid, empowered artisans at a worker-owned cooperative in Nairobi, Kenya. This cooperative is located in Kibera, which is one of Africa’s largest slums. Our remarkable partners use the power of artistry to transform their own lives. In doing so, they also transform their community. Our partners craft the Kenya Collection from recycled brass with accents of cow horn and bone because these resources are available locally.
The Waterfall Earrings Features:
- Earrings hang approximately 2″
- Crafted from recycled brass
- If desired, polish with a brass cloth in order to maintain shine
Swahili Coast's guiding principles:
We believe that as talented artisans, we deserve to own the fruits of our labor. Our cooperative is 100 % worker owned by active members. Workers that participate in the co-op own the share of profits that they contribute to over the course of each month.
Eighty percent of our co-op members are women. We prioritize working with women artisans because we believe that women are agents for change and progress here in Tanzania. We care for our families, we send our children to school, and we work hard for our communities, culture, and country.
Our co-op pays fair wages, and pays out our monthly profits back to our workers at the end of each month. We are our own boss and we do not work for anyone but ourselves.
