Artisans in Nairobi

SERRV partner since 1989

Your purchase of handcrafted jewelry helps artisans outside one of Nairobi's oldest and largest slums put food on their tables, secure shelter and clothing, and send their children to school.

Since 1989, SERRV International has partnered with artisans in Nairobi, providing a long-term trading partnership and interest-free advance payment for our orders. Through sales of their products, artisans receive a monthly income, training, and participation in a profit-sharing plan to set aside 10% of their earnings each month in a pension plan. Inspiration for new products comes from traditional African jewelry designs and incorporates beads from local family batik bone bead producers.

Artisans in Nairobi use several techniques to create their variety of beautiful handcrafts, including batik. Read more about these handcrafting techniques.
