welcome to AKISIR
Akisir is a word from the Turkana language that means ‘to adorn’ or to ‘beautify’.
Akisir Studios is about creating gorgeous, stylish, unique, adornments that are ethically and sustainably crafted.
At Akisir the sustainable protection and enhancement of the quality of the environment is at the core of all our production activities. We focus on the use of materials that are recycled, upcycled, and reused.
Crafting your Curiosity is our Mission.
All our pieces are handcrafted in Kenya by Kenyan artisans.
Our metal pieces are made primarily of recycled brass and aluminum. We also use recycled glass and sustainably collected pieces of wood.
Recycled metals not only reduce the carbon footprint, but they also require much less energy to produce and process compared to the production of new/fresh raw materials. The same applies for the use of recycled glass.
Recycling creates a chain of economic activities and provides livelihoods along the production chain, right from the scrap metal collectors to the artisans.
Other natural materials used include assorted stones and sea shells, horns, and bones from non endangered species.
Feel and look gorgeous wearing these timeless handcrafted pieces.
Your purchase supports Kenyan artisans and their families.
