Are you having trouble finding ethically-made or fair trade accessories to pair with your outfits? Your worries end here! Check out some accessories and brands we are currently obsessed with, and piece together a cute outfit that you can feel good about in no time!
1. The Chitenge Backpack seen above is from Khama and is designed with bold and bright Malawian and Zambian chitenge cotton. The backpack style is offered in eight unique prints. These chitenge backpack’s pair perfectly with one of our BAOBAB dresses for a casual weekend excursion.
Khama uses only locally sourced goods when making their high-quality accessories to provide an above-average income for workers. They often collaborate with micro charities and provide manufacturing services for other brands.
2. We love this miale necklace from Johari. Made out of brass sourced in Kenya, it is the perfect statement piece to dress up any scoop neck dress or top. Try pairing the Johari miale necklace with our blue and purple COCO dress.
Johari Designs is a social enterprise with a location in Nairobi, Kenya and Edinburgh, Scotland that provides support and assistance to vulnerable children and young adults in Kenya. Through an 18 month design curriculum, Johari Designs provides young adults with skills they need to later seek employment in the fashion industry.
3. We are obsessed with these gorgeous earrings from Quazi Design. Made from recycled newspaper dipped in gold, these earrings are sure to grab attention. They are a great accessory that are sure to make our brown and cream COCO dress pop.
Quazi Design transforms waste paper into products from earrings to lampshades, and everything in between. They empower local Swaziland women by providing them with relevant skills and a livable wage.
