Over the last few weeks we have been busy sourcing new ranges of Fair Trade jewellery and are able to announce that products from Kenya are now available from our online shop.
Paul Wolfenden, owner of THE FAIR TRADE STORE, commented “We are delighted with our new range, which has been skillfully crafted from waste cow bone in workshops in Kibera slum, on the outskirts of Nairobi. By purchasing these products you really are helping to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged people in Kenya.”
The range includes Fair Trade bangles, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. A sanding machine is used to shape the bone and then the patterns are created with hot wax. The result is fantastic animal designs, including giraffe and zebra. Where required, recycled copper or linen is also used and the overall effect, we think, is quite stunning.
Our favourite is this this Safari Charm Necklace with Bone Animal Shapes. We hope you like them too.
