Made was born from a desire to create beautiful products using traditional, time-honoured skills and fashion led design. We believe in transparency and integrity in all that we do. By working in synergy with the people and communities with whom we work, we aim to create positive change through the production of beautiful and unique jewellery and accessories.
Each unique piece in the Made collection is hand crafted by highly skilled, dedicated artisans. Traditional craftsmanship is infused into all our products and every item in our 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.
At Made we believe that people matter. That’s why we make it our business to invest in our employees. Our 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 we have grown to employ over 60 men and women.
From highly skilled craftsmen and women to novices eager to learn, our 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. We believe that by investing in our team we are not only acting responsibly but we are also able to create the best product possible.
