Akola Izzy Earrings -- Natural
100% of product revenues are reinvested in the social mission to empower these women to transform their families and communities. Through your purchase, this necklace will provide the income for Akola women to provide the basic needs for their family. These specific pieces are hand-rolled by over 200 women and mothers living in rural villages of Uganda. This skill allows them to work from the comforts of their own home so they can look after their children while earning a source of income.
Hand-rolled Keratasi paper beads, hand-carved horn and raffia tassels on a gold-tone circle stud.
- In preparation for this collection, Akola has trained and employed women in poverty in Uganda to dye and braid raffia, which is then used to wrap beads and create tassels.
