Our Mission

ARTISAN MADE

We believe in empowering artisans with a sustainable income through craft. Our mission is to connect artisans to significant global markets and help improve their livelihood by bringing their unique products right to your doorstep.All of our products are made by a talented team of African artisans. We currently work with master artisans from Ghana, Kenya, Burkina Faso and Senegal. Each community is unique and we foster collaboration by inviting local communities along on our journey.

SUSTAINABILITY

RECYCLED MATERIALS

Safi's jewelry artisans recycle brass, a metal alloy made with copper and zinc. The artisans also use responsibly sourced reclaimed wood and cow horn, a byproduct of the food industry, that would otherwise be thrown out.

OUR VISION

TRANSPARENCY

No intermediaries and no wholesalers. So no excessive margins. It's just between you and us. And this is what allows us to offer you a quality product at an affordable price. Welcome to the fashion of the 21st century.
