Kazuri, for every woman who loves unique jewelry.
KAZURI's jewelry collection consists of handcrafted and hand-painted ceramic jewelry from Kenya, East Africa. The beautiful, unique beads are made out of clay from the area around Mount Kenya, meaning that it is an authentic product from this region.
Already 350 women are employed by KAZURI, to shape and glaze every bead and to develop them into unique pieces of jewelry. The workshop of KAZURI is located at a section of the Karen Blixen estate, well-known from the famous film Out of Africa. For many years now, KAZURI has been registered with WFTO/IFAT as FAIR TRADE
Kazuri is a member of the WFTO !

Kazuri, small & beautiful
The founder of KAZURI, Lady Susan Wood (1918-2005) established KAZURI in 1975 with two local women as a small pottery in her backyard. She taught them how to create jewelry from clay, shape and glaze every bead and to develop them into unique pieces of jewelry so they could sell them and earn their own income. The company developed more and more and In 2000, Mark and Regina Newman continued the work from Susan Wood as she was becoming of age. They took over KAZURI. They valued the same mission as Susan Wood: To provide and sustain employment opportunities for disadvanved members of the Kenyan society. To reach this, they focussed also on export of the beautiful KAZURI beads and jewelry.
