Designed in close collaboration with Faraja Widows. These women, widowed (and affected) by HIV/AIDS, live in Nairobi’s Kibera slum. Theirs is a tremendous story of resilience in Africa’s largest slum.
Soft transparent cotton ties make this statement piece adjustable AND comfortable. (the word Faraja means Comfort in Swahili) Made from a unique variety of ceramic, glass, lava, and brass which we sourced in the market in Nairobi with the help of the lead artisan of Faraja (Eunice!) Fun side note: the two dark grey lava beads in the center are a great diffuser for essential oils. Simply add 1-2 drops to each bead.
