Start with ancient traditions from West & East Africa. Then toss in a serving of Italian flair. Finally, add a heaping helping of appreciation for art. The stylish result? The bold, sensuous & sophisticated designs of Nairobi-based designer Adèle Dejak. Skilled local Kenyan artisans handcraft her necklaces, pendants, bracelets, earrings, rings & bags from a variety eco-friendly materials including horn, bone, ebony, recycled aluminum and brass. The handbags combine local leather with exotic indigenous materials such as bakuba & kitenge.
