 “I am a mother of four children. I performed all the tasks of beading biome drop earing. It was a new technique therefore besides income, I also got the opportunity to improve my beading skill which I intent to employ in preparing Christmas gifts for my friends during this festive season”.
Mary Mwelu, 45 years old

“I am a mother of five and a grandmother of three. I performed on the biome drop earing order as a machinist. Working on the order gave me a lot of psychological satisfaction as a mother and a grand- mother since there are very few work opportunities even for the youth. I used my income to pay rent, buy food and saved some to use during Christmas festivities”.

Julia Wangui, 57 years old


“I am a mother of one. I worked on the biome drop earing order as a beader. I enjoyed perfoming on this order as it came a viable idea to make money both as a member of the group and on my own. I had beading skills but I found that the technique used in producing the earing was unique which greatly improved my skill.”

We carry out a Social Impact Report for every collection made in collaboration with the Ethical Fashion Initiative. 

Social workers are embedded in the communities in which we work, and closely monitor the implementation of our code of conduct. 

Extensive data is collected to carefully measure the impact of each order, to ensure that the work is positively impacting the lives of the artisans and that our projects are working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
