    Kazuri – small and beautiful 

    Just because I have some nice photos and because this is a place, where over 400 single Kenyan women create small and beautiful ceramic jewelry, I decided to share it. Well, at least next time you see somewhere in the US or UK or else small store called Kazuri, which in Swahili means “small and beautiful,” you will know who makes these colorful beads.

    Kazuri produces over 5 million beads a year and exports them to over 30 countries worldwide and can be ordered online, just search for them.

    While visiting this place, guides take you on tour showing the whole process from very beginning to the end product – beads in the store. Get a short tour with the photos…

      Thank you for the info!
      Global Fayre is also a member of the Fair Trade Federation, but we hadn’t come across this group before – we’ll be in touch with them!

    Moments of daily life 

    Nairobi busIf you do not have a car in Nairobi, feel free to exercise, like many others who walk kilometers to work and back. Or be rich and get expensive taxi rides. If none of this options work for you, then just learn the public bus routes. Interesting thing about public buses is that they’ve created a new type of job – calling up people asking to get on the bus, no matter whether they want to go to that direction or not. And yes, they can be very persuasive.
