Inspired by the fact that entire pineapples are frequently finished by one person in one sitting around the Zena HQ. Pro tip: freeze pineapple chunks for a fun snack.
PS: Each bead has been hand dyed and strung by women at the Zena HQ, so each one has a uniquely fun patterning. We recommend getting a few for stacking :)
Handcrafted in Uganda from recycled Ankole Horn featuring natural, local dyes and come in their own gift bag hand-made by the Zena women from our favorite local Kitenge fabrics.
Made out of recycled materials, Ships to US + UK, Handmade
Zena products are handcrafted by female entrepreneurs in Kamuli, Uganda. Zena women are female entrepreneurs who were previously living below the poverty line. Through short term apprenticeships, they are able to earn a living wage above the poverty line, while saving monthly towards the start-up capital they need to start their businesses.
At Zena, we believe that investing in female entrepreneurs has the power to change the stories of extreme poverty and gender inequality.
All of our products are made from waste materials.
Our earrings are handcrafted from Ankole Cattle Horn that has been discarded as a by-product of the agricultural industry. We love that working with Cattle horn supports local farmers in Uganda to diversify their income while making the agricultural industry more efficient. No animals are harmed in the making of our products.
We also use recycled scrap brass from Kenya.
We are committed to using recycled, locally sourced materials and making intentional packaging choices.
