About Koko Fair
Koko Fair has a passion for companies making an impact on lives and the environment. We have spent many years in Kenya and have been moved by several companies that are making a difference. You can share in their story by supporting their products. We are excited to be partners with the below companies.
Kazuri, which means “small and beautiful” in Swahili, began in 1975 as a tiny workshop experimenting in hand crafted ceramic beads.
Its founder started with two single motherhood women and soon discovered that there were many others in the villages around Nairobi, most of who were disadvantaged and were in great need of regular employment.
Today Kazuri has grown tremendously and now has a large workforce of over 340 women skilled in the crafting of ceramic beads, strung into beautifully and artistically jewelry.
The flair has taken Kazuri to a different dimension of making their own unique range of pottery which reflects the culture and wildlife of Kenya. Each piece, like their beads, is handmade and hand painted using rich colors.
