About us

Kazuri, which means “it’s Small & Beautiful” in Swahili, began in 1975 as a tiny workshop experimenting in hand crafted ceramic beads with only 2 women. Kazuri produces top quality handmade ceramic jewellery and pottery, hand-painted in our unique range of rich colours that reflect the culture, vibrancy and wildlife of Kenya.

Kazuri workshop in Karen nowadays employs a workforce of over 340 single-mothers skilled in the crafting of ceramic beads strung into beautifully and artistically created luxurious jewellery. The workshop is equipped with a clinic providing free medical care for the employees and their immediate families. Additionally Kazuri absorbs a large proportion of the medical bills incurred outside the Factory Clinic, among other social support to the women. This is a major boost to the society.
