KAZURI Bead history: Now a collective of 340 women – many single mothers – making and hand-painting a range of exquisite original ceramic beads, designed to convey the colors of Africa. All Kazuri beads are shaped by hand from earthen clay and kiln fired. They are then painted and glazed by hand, before being kiln fired again. “In an age of mass-produced goods, Kazuri beads stand out as a little bit different. As every piece is handmade, every one is unique. Indeed, many pieces take on the quirks and trademarks of the individual people who shape the beads, paint them or string them, giving them soul as well as beauty. Many Kazuri styles are named after areas, tribes and other features of the Kenyan landscape; evocative names that resonate with the organic nature of the clay that comes from its earth.” They are made at the Plantation that was seen in “Out of Africa” They are FAIR TRADE items. We have already paid that price – you get to enjoy these unique and beautiful beads at a HUGE discount.
