Although Yala work hard to eliminate waste from their manufacturing processes sometimes it’s unavoidable. The team at the brass workshop in Nairobi rescue these odd pieces and transform them by hand into these unique, one of a kind bean shaped pendants.

This necklace really brings Yala’s sustainable ethos to life and is a wonderful everyday piece – and a great gift option too.

About The Brand

Description

why Yala made thegoodedit

Certified B Corp

Meets the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, committed to using their business as a force for good.

Reclaimed materials

Sourcing recycled materials is central to the production of Yala’s jewellery collection.

Empowering Women

Financially empowering the Maasai women to generate income which supports their family and local community

Inspiring ethical jewellery

Audrey Migot-Adholla’s dream turned into reality when she founded Yala. A dream to celebrate and recognise the creative, design and entrepreneurial talent of Kenyan artisans. Taking inspiration from traditional crafts, Yala transforms reclaimed materials, like brass, into modern and beautiful jewellery that is made to last.

As the first jewellery brand in the UK to become a certified B Corp, Yala has always set out with the intention to use their business as a force for good. You can read more about Yala’s B Corp assessment and rating here.

Having direct relationships with over 150 Kenyan artisans means that Yala can ensure transparency across the production process – providing fair wages and safe working environments. Yala roots much of their work in Kenya, employing Kenyan makers, models, photographers and stylists.

Empowering women is a key objective for Yala. Their partnership with the BMB Workshop in Kenya sees 158 local Maasai women employed, while preserving the traditional Maasai beading practice. Providing three times the average daily wage in Kenya, the workshop enables its artisans to look after themselves and their families, as well as the wider community. In total, their work has a positive impact on over 300 households in the area.

Another group financially empowered through Yala’s operation in Kenya are the brass workshops located in and around Nairobi. Through their low tech processes, each recycled brass piece of jewellery is  purified, moulded, hammered and polished by hand.

Product info
During the process of casting our jewellery, small randomly-shaped pieces of brass become separated from the finished product. George and and his team in the brass workshop rescue these pieces and transform them into smooth, bean-shaped pendants which they call "organics", which are then delicately hung from a 14k gold filled chain. Please note that due to the nature of production, each piece is completely unique.
