As pioneers of the community conservancy concept in Kenya, we’re committed to helping preserve Africa’s unique wildlife, landscapes and local communities. We are delighted to be involved in the “Lasting Footprints” jewellery collection, inspired & designed by sustainable Kenyan fashion company Lilabare.
The range has been entirely inspired and created using the natural phenomena found within the Masai Mara’s Olare Motorogi conservancy. From their base at Porini Lion Camp, they were tracking mainly animal footprints with the help of Porini Guides, and were able to cast moulds of the imprints left on the earth by the wildlife we are seeking to protect.
This jewellery range features hand-casted brass pendants of authentic wildlife tracks and natural phenomena.
Entirely made from waste materials & hand-crafted by artisans in Kenya.
For every purchase made from this series, one indigenous seedling will be planted in the Masai Mara Olare Motorogi Conservancy, where the tracks were found.
