Savannah Chic

Savannah Chic was founded in 2008 by Shruti Patel after having spent 8 years working in international development. Growing up in Kenya she saw how millions of dollars of aid money had done very little to improve the lives of the majority, who continue to live on less than $2 a day. Savannah Chic was created as a way of leveraging the indigenous skills of artisanal metal and beadwork and promoting development. Working together with her mother Charu, who studied fashion at one of Kenya’s top design colleges, they create distinctive Afro-inspired jewellery, under fair trade practices using ethically sourced materials.
