Amias Project Accessories
Product DescriptionFor centuries, the nomadic Barabaig tribe of East Africa has adorned themselves with beautiful rings, bracelets, and jewelry. Through the Amias Project, the Barabaig artisans send their beautiful things and their stories around the world.
Nichole Smaglick, founder of the Amias Project, has mobilized over 200 Barabaig men and women in central Tanzania to design and craft jewelry and handbags, inspired by traditional fashions. The project aims to uplift and empower traditional artisans. It also helps generate significant income and educational opportunities.
Amias, in the ancient language of the Barabaig, means "beautiful". So you are wearing hope, the stories of the Barabaig, and something beautiful. A Fair Trade vendor.
