NYUMBANI DESIGN is a Tanzanian-based jewellery brand inspired by the beauty and colours of the Swahili coastline and my sister is the beautifully, talented designer behind the brand! The handcrafted mostly wooden pieces are shaped by skilled artisans throughout Tanzania using locally sourced wood. Each piece is uniquely sculpted using different sections of the wood so that no two pieces are the same.
As well as supporting local trade & employment, Nyumbani Design is in partnership with the environmental project, Trees for The Future. For every jewellery piece sold a seed will be planted to restore and support the plantation of trees in the developing world.
Check out some of the pieces below or visit the website for more pictures and details on stockists.
