how we do it

At the heart of UziZuri is a team of hugely creative artisan partners. Each artisan has their specialty, ranging from bead work to brass craft, developed and perfected over several years of practice. 

Our platform creates an opportunity for their products to reach a global audience. This translates to higher incomes for artisans, as well as greater incentive to improve production quality and capacity.

Materials

We believe that traditional production methods can be employed sustainably. Our artisans use high quality beads, as well as locally sourced and eco-friendly materials such as recycled brass, by-product leather, and reclaimed cow horn.

Design

Each product on our catalog is thoughtfully designed and handcrafted at our artisans' workshops.

Our creative approach fuses contemporary ideas with traditional African designs. This ensures that heritage craftsmanship is preserved, while also achieving a modern aesthetic.
