FALL COLLECTION Grow: Seen + Unseen
 
This signature collection represents new beginnings with classic brass, horn, and polymer pieces.  It encompasses the seasons of growth, signifying the beauty that comes with change. We are excited to move deeper into this year’s botanical theme as we transition into cooler temperatures. From the homes of resettled refugees across the ocean to Kenya and every home in-between, this staple fall collection represents being rooted and established while we embrace new mercies every day. “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18

ARTISAN DETAILS 

Forged in Hope is the newest artisan group supported by Mercy House Global. The group started with an artisan named Stephen who expressed himself through creating jewelry. He established his upcycled brass jewelry business in the heart of Kibera, the largest urban slum in Africa. After Stephen died of typhoid, his wife Maureen continued his legacy and grew production volume to ensure ongoing work for the employees. From tragedy, Maureen has built a strong jewelry business, and she has also invested in multiple businesses in Kibera, creating opportunities for others and stimulating economic growth. Before Stephen's death, Wycliffe worked closely with him for several years as an artisan in the jewelry workshop. Wycliffe quickly rose to a position of leadership to supervise the daily work of the artisans. Through the previous partnership with Karama Collection, Wycliffe was able to learn pricing, team leadership, and quality control. Through his leadership, five additional positions have been added to the business. Mercy House Global is excited to step in and support this talented group of artisans.
