About Kazuri beads: Kazuri, meaning “small and beautiful” in Swahili, is a bead manufacturer based outside Nairobi, Kenya. The mission of Kazuri is “to provide and sustain employment opportunities for disadvantaged members of Kenyan society” and is a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO). Kazuri employs over 340 women, mostly single mothers in need of regular employment, and has a clinic on-site that provides free medical care for the employees and their immediate families. Kazuri ceramic beads are handmade and hand-painted. The Coastal Desert sources its Kazuri beads directly from the factory outside of Nairobi, during regular visits to Kenya, in an effort to offer more ethical jewellery. For more information, please visit Note that these beads are each made by hand and therefore will be unique and may have minor flaws

Where do I source my Kazuri beads?
I source my Kazuri beads directly from the Kazuri factory in Nairobi, Kenya as I travel to Kenya frequently for business. I use most of the Kazuri beads I purchase in my handmade jewellery shop, The Coastal Desert:
