The Story: Savannah Chic was founded in 2008 as a way of leveraging indigenous skills and promoting development in Kenya. The founder, Shruti, working together with her mother Charu, who studied fashion at one of Kenya's top design colleges, creates distinctive Afro-inspired jewellery that can be worn just as easily on the style-savvy streets of New York City as it can whilst on safari in Africa. Savannah Chic works hand in hand with skilled artisans and marginalised communities using local African and recycled materials. Based on the principles of fair trade, their model creates work, promotes entrepreneurship, and preserves traditional craftsmanship. They have now built a network of over 15 skilled craftsmen and women, with whom they design collections that combine the latest jewellery trends with traditional African techniques.
