Kazuri Beads

Kazuri beads are made from clay dug by hand from the rich earth of Mount Kenya, then hand-shaped and painted, one carefully-crafted piece at a time. Kazuri, which means "small and beautiful" in Swahili, began in 1975 as a tiny workshop experimenting on making ceramic beads made by hand. It started with two Kenyan woman and soon it was soon realized that there were many other women, mostly single mothers, in the villages around Nairobi who were in great need of employment. Kazuri now employs over 300 women and is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO). The mission of Kazuri is to sustain employment opportunities for disadvantaged members of Kenyan society. Buying these beads enhances the lives of disadvantaged families of the Kikuyu tribe in Kenya and helps promote fair trade in Africa.
