About Your Brass Jewelry
Did you know almost 90% of the world's brass is recycled? All of the brass we use is locally sourced by our artisan partners in Kenya. It is a metal alloy of copper and zinc - a sustainable and durable option for jewelry. As natural materials do, brass will develop a patina over time, but can always be brought back to its original shine.
To polish your brass, you can use the polishing cloth included in your order. Another great option is Brasso. If you'd like to DIY a cleaning solution, mix lemon juice and baking soda into a paste. Rub onto the surface of the jewelry with a cloth. Then gently rinse and buff dry with a clean cloth.
To keep your brass in tip top shape, remove jewelry before exercise, showering, or before sleeping, and store it jewelry in the cloth bag it came in away from extreme heat or moisture.
”We partner with makers in Kenya and Tanzania to produce our designs. These partners were intentionally selected because of our mutual values for following the principles of fair trade while maintaining our high standards for quality. All of the employees of each small business are paid above the national standards for a living wage.
All of our products are handmade, and by nature are small-batch. We believe in intentional choices, not just making more to have more. Our Core Collection serves as the fundamentals for a well-styled wardrobe. You don't need 100 pairs of earrings, so we won't offer you that many. Our drops are limited-edition special pieces for the current moment - maintaining our signature modern yet timeless feel.
Every part of our supply chain is important to us, and we are very proud that all of our materials, from the brass hardware to the leather, are locally and ethically sourced. We only use leather that is a byproduct of the meat industry, an integral part of the local economy.”
