The Leakey Collection Zulugrass Jewelry Review

Do you want to support a fair trade certified company that supports the Massai women and men of Kenya? Do you like wearing beautiful jewelry? Do you want to buy jewelry made from sustainably harvested grass that is helping to preserve a wetland in Kenya?

Let me introduce you to Zulugrass, from The Leakey Collection, founded in 2002 by Katy and Philip Leakey. Their work includes the design and manufacture of contemporary jewelry that is hand made by the Maasai women and men of Kenya from environmentally sustainable materials. The flagship item of the collection- Zulugrass- is sold individually or in Multistrand, which allows you to get precisely the color, depth and weight of the jewelry that you want. It has an organic look and feel but is completely modern.

Zulugrass is light weight, durable and most importantly incorporates high design with versatility. You no longer have to carry a bunch of bracelets, necklaces, hair ties etc. because Zulugrass allows you to get several looks from a few lightweight strands. Further, depending on the color and amount of strands used- the look can be as subdued or as colorful you want- just a couple twists or some added strands an you have literally dozens of styles.

Besides supporting the work of the Massai women, 5% of all sales goes back to the local community in the form of education and health benefits. Now that is a jewelry purchase you can feel great about!

I love that there are so many ways to wear this beautiful jewelry. I can wear it as a short necklace or long necklace, as a bracelet or in my hair. I also appreciate that it is such good quality jewelry. In fact, the elastic used in Zulugrass jewelry was invented for the movie Spiderman. These necklaces are waterproof, colorfast and long lasting. I love everything about this beautiful jewelry!

This Earth Day and really, any other day, buy yourself or someone else a gift of jewelry that helps others and supports our planet! Check out the whole Zulugrass line and other beautiful jewelry in the Leakey Collection.

You can buy them right from the website or look for a retailer near you. I was shocked and excited to see that they sell them only 15 minutes from me!!

*The Leakey Collection provided me product to review, and I was under no obligation to review if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product.*

  1. What a great concept and I love the jewelry! I'd like to give some of these as holiday gifts, along with information about the Massai!
