Firstly, I didn't visit the factory, although I wished I did!
However, we did buy quite a few items from the kazuri shop at Westlands Mall, so I wanted to write a review here.
As many others have mentioned, kazuri gives jobs to destitute, mainly single mothers, whom with their wages, often support an extended family of 20. They also give free medical care to immediate family. Put simply, if you buy their Jewellrey, or other pottery items, you are feeding and giving healthcare to, families.
The designs are wry wide ranging and absolutely beautiful! From small beaded necklaces to statement pieces you will surely find something to your taste. We particularly liked the bracelets, they are memory wired, and long enough to wrap around your wrist 2 1/2 times. Colours ooze the landscape of Africa with browns, honey, yellows, oranges, reds to colours like blues, greens.
I got a lovely ivory shale shaped necklace, a choker with brown round beads and a triangle in middle with giraffe pattern, a honey bracelet and some lovely blue and red bracelets as presents
Please consider going here, and purchasing, you are really helping families, you know the money spent is given directly to the ladies in wages, some of our aid to Africa isn't so lucky, and doesn't always end up for the people in need.....
