Fairtrade haematite bead necklace with heart charm.
Heart measures 3.5cm from top to bottom. Chain is 40cm.
These necklaces are made by women’s groups in Kenya like those from the slums in Kibera. Karibuni buys the necklaces from a cooperative managed by Pauline Ntombura of Salom Enterprises which is recognised by the World Fairtrade Organisation. Fairtrade means that artists are paid a fair price in advance for their products and work in safe, if basic, conditions. It provides the framework for empowering disadvantaged people to make a fair living and provide for themselves, their families and community.
