Gold Beaded Drape Necklace. With amazing creative vision, these talented artisans pull from a wealth of traditional and modern beads and materials to create stunning ethnic jewelry.
Over the years, we have enjoyed a great working relationship with a loose network of jewelry artisans in Nairobi, Kenya.
Our Producer Partners Swahili believes that hardworking African artisans, producers and export agents hold the key to their own personal success and that the path to success requires a steady, committed pace.
Swahili extends each artisan’s channel of trade from local markets to the global marketplace, all the while allowing artisans to work from the comfort of their own homes and communities.
Secure in the knowledge that the fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs and haggled prices, most artisans in the Swahili network promote their family’s future by using earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.
