'Made' in Kenya

This shot of Riri inspired us to give short statement necklaces another chance, so when we saw that Made’s ‘Ngatha Nene’ necklace was on sale down from £45 to £18 we did a little happy dance.

‘Made’ is a fair trade accessories brand that produces jewellery in Nairobi, Kenya. While their whole ‘giving people in Africa a chance to make a better life for themselves’ speel is a tad patronising, given Western media we’ll forgive them for not knowing that there are Africans out there doing more than just receiving aid. 

While their intentions are good, they’re accessories are even better.   

They also do great leather bags- but we’ll have to save up for those. 

(You can shop ‘Made’ online, in Topshop, or on ASOS)
