The factory is located in what used to be part of the Karen Blixen Estate (of the Academy Award winning film "Out of Africa") fame.Kazuri Beads Factory is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.
We started with two Kenyan women and soon discovered that there were many other women in the villages around Nairobi, most of whom were single mothers, who were in great need of regular employment.
Driven by the desire to provide such opportunities, Kazuri has grown and today we have a large work force skilled in the making of handmade jewellery.
We have further applied our knowledge of ceramics and the artistic flair that has made our necklaces so attractive, in the design and production of our own unique range of pottery-ware, which reflects the culture and wildlife of Kenya.
Each piece, like our beads, is hand made and hand painted in rich colours and our range is extensive from individual collector pieces to dinnerware.
You can find our shops here in Kenya:
- Junction Mall
- Westgate Mall
- Village Market
- Diani Shopping Center
Tanzania as of Sep 2017:
- Cultural Heritage Tourists Centre

Kazuhiro is an organization that employs, empowers, and give financial stability to women of Nairobi. They make incredible beaded jewelry and crafts. I left wishing I had bigger luggage to carry more gifts home. It is also near some great food options (Tin Roof).
Really inspiring, small cute gift shop
