"Every item in the collection echoes the love and skill of the hands that made it."
Each unique piece in the Made collection is hand crafted by highly skilled, dedicated artisans. Traditional craftsmanship is infused into all products and every item in the collection echoes the love and skill of the hands that made it. Using techniques handed down through the generations, our jewellery and bags not only look great but also tell a story of lives changed through safe, sustainable employment, training and education.
Made believe that people matter. That’s why they make it our business to invest in their employees. The Made workshop in Kenya was founded in 2005 with a view to harnessing the talent and skills of artisans in Kenya, whilst providing a safe working environment, long-term job security and training. Since then the brand have grown to employ over 60 men and women. From highly skilled craftsmen and women to novices eager to learn, the goal is to create sustainable jobs, teach new skills and empower developing communities in Kenya through the production of beautiful, unique and highly covetable accessories. Made believe that by investing in our team we are not only acting responsibly but we are also able to create the best product possible.
Made are dedicated to using the most environmentally sound materials possible. The brand's signature style comes from extensive use of reclaimed brass in the production of our products. The reasons for this are two-fold: Firstly; by sourcing materials locally we are further supporting the community within the vicinity of the workshop, including Kibera, one of the world’s largest slums. Made buy raw materials from local individuals, at a fair price, thereby helping to both strengthen the local economy and empower small businesses. Secondly; by using recycled materials where possible, the brand is behaving in a way that is both responsible and ethical whilst also producing a product that looks great and is a pleasure to wear.
