Designers » Kora


Amy Walker and Maxandra Short created Kora in 2008 after working for a non-profit group in Rwanda. Recycled materials such as discarded cow bones and horns, brass and aluminum from old pots and automobiles, and other re-purposed materials figure prominently into the collection. The duo employ local artisans to produce the jewelry, paying a fair prices for each piece and enabling the artisans to fund and grow their local businesses. Kora is mainly created in Nairobi, Kenya.
