Designed in San Francisco and handmade in Kenya, this Lariat Necklace is from Soko, a partially Black-owned, women-led brand that is redefining ethical fashion. The brand matches marginalized Kenyan craftspeople with real-time demands to bring their stunning statements to market. Handcrafted from ceramic and 24k-gold-plated brass, this necklace is a collaboration with Kazuri, an established Kenyan ceramics and bead company that’s a member of the World Fair Trade Organization. Kazuri’s mission is to provide and sustain employment opportunities for disadvantaged members of Kenyan society, especially single mothers. Established in 1975, Kazuri started out as a tiny workshop and has since grown to a network of over 340 women. These Soko Kazuri Lariat Necklace measures 19”l.
