The Kazuri Journey

Sustainably crafted jewelry that tells stories of empowerment, showcases artistic mastery, and embraces the beauty of nature.

In the heart of Nairobi, Kenya, a humble workshop emerged in 1975, where a remarkable journey began. This was the birthplace of Kazuri, a brand that weaves tales of empowerment, celebrates artistic mastery, and embraces the untamed beauty of nature through sustainably crafted jewelry.

Kazuri, derived from the Swahili word for "small and beautiful," started as a beacon of hope for single mothers in the surrounding villages. Founded by the visionary Lady Susan Wood, its mission was to create employment opportunities and uplift the lives of these resilient women.

With their skilled hands and indomitable spirit, these artisans transformed simple beads into intricate works of art. Each piece, meticulously handcrafted and painted, became a testament to the rich culture and vibrant wildlife that grace the lands of Kenya.

Today, Kazuri stands as a global brand, renowned for its exquisite range of handmade jewelry. Every necklace, bracelet, and earring carries the essence of its maker's dedication and creativity, making it truly one-of-a-kind.

At Kazuri, we believe in the power of conscious choices. By adorning yourself with Kazuri jewelry, you become a part of a greater story—a story of social impact and positive change. Every purchase supports our mission to provide sustainable employment opportunities to those in need throughout Africa.
