"Kushuka" means "to descend or get off/exit" in Swahili. This linked necklace is a fashion statement - and also provides an opportunity for artisans to exit the poverty cycle they have been born into, and give them the confidence and means to begin a new journey.
This bold necklace is carefully handcrafted in Kibera slums, Kenya. The beautiful pendant is made from recycled glass and the metal is recycled, repurposed metal! Each link is unique, handcrafted and tells a story of hard work, artistry and a desire to escape poverty!!

Our world changing fashion is all individually handcrafted, and therefore small imperfections, differences in shape, size and colour can happen and are part of the charm of a handmade product - reminding us an actual person made this item just for you.
