  • Who doesn't love a tassel? The Horn of Africa necklace made by Kenyan Deaf artisans features handmade chain, a recycled brass "saucer" bead, faceted glass and a hand-carved piece of cow horn atop this simple and elegant stacked design.

    This season we feature the hand-made chain of local Kenyan artisan named Cylas. A master metal worker, this chain is considered the finest chain available in Kenya - and we are thankful to partner with Cylas to create our three new necklaces this season.

    Sasa Designs by the Deaf launched in Fall 2011 with the goal of providing employment and fair wages to Deaf artisans in Kenya. With an estimated unemployment rate of 85% among the Deaf in Kenya, few will have an opportunity to discover their potential, work in dignity and earn a fair wage.  Sasa Designs gives Deaf artisans the chance they’ve been waiting for – the chance to learn new skills, to discover what they are capable of and to feel productive. A subsidiary of DOOR International, Sasa Designs by the Deaf provides training and employment for Deaf women who have faced a lifetime of discrimination. For the first time, they are recognized for their potential, and not for their inability to communicate with the world at large.

    The women of Sasa Designs by the Deaf have started a new chapter in their lives, a chapter in which they use each moment to build a better life: for themselves, for their children, and for their extended family and community. Each of the artisans have a wrap named after them in this collection - a unique bracelet she helped create in order to tell her story.  Thank you for being a part of Sasa Design’s beginnings and the journey we are embarking on to change the future for Deaf women in Kenya, and someday, beyond.
