TURKANA TO TIMBUKTU AFRICAN JEWELLERY
Turkana county lies in north-west Kenya. The region and its people are well known for their elaborate African jewellery, particularly their large beaded collars that weigh several kilos. Turkana women are also famous for making ostrich eggshell beads – the oldest known man-made bead that originated during the African Middle Stone Age. On the other side of the continent lies Timbuktu, located in the West African nation of Mali. Throughout its history Timbuktu has come under the rule of various Empire and tribes, and has been a significant crossroads for trade and culture. The Turkana to Timbuktu collection revives the legacy of these cultural landmarks and pays tribute to the incredible forms of adornment that spans across the continent.
These exclusive pieces of African jewellery have been featured on the runway at Africa Fashion Week London, East Africa Fashion Week, Nairobi Fashion Week, and in the media. Steal the limelight and let all eyes fall on you with one of these African inspired beauties which are now available for your personal collection.
