Jimani Collections is a jewelry company that I am so enthusiastic to share. It is always a pleasure to bring awareness to companies that aim for a good cause in not only the artistry of product design and craftsmanship, but also in support of philanthropic organizations.
Through innovation, education, and design, Jimani Collections exists to transform and expand access to economic opportunity for artisans in under-served communities worldwide.
They work with some of the poorest in the world – women who have experienced a harsh reality that few can imagine. Through structured training programs, they offer these women employment and education within product design and product creation. By building a bridge between consumers and artisans, they are able to promote equitable trade while alleviating widespread poverty.
They source many of their materials from Nairobi and surrounding countries, including upcycled horn and bone from local farmers. In their workshops, they are constantly working with the women to ensure policies and systems are in place to provide the best working conditions possible.
As a whole, Jimani Collections aims to change the lives of those they work with by offering a sustainable income, education, safe workplace, community, and an opportunity to showcase workmanship through unique and well-crafted products. You can read more of their story here.
How meaningful to purchase a piece or what a perfect gift idea that in turn gives back to empower women with opportunity and dignified work. These Jino Bone Earrings, featured below were made by women in Nairobi, Kenya. I love how they are modern, simple, chic, and classic. I don’t see them going out of style and they match just about any outfit and color. Fashionable and stylish as well as in support of a good cause is just my cup of tea =)
