NYUMBANI DESIGNS AW14/15 LOOKBOOK - YELLOW SPACES.
Inspired by the beauty and colours of the Swahili coast of East Africa, Nyumbani Designs is a lifestyle, wooden jewelry and homeware range founded by Kerry Glanfield, a fashion production and development specialist from the Cayman Islands, in 2012. The label is a colourful amalgamation of her homes in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and East Africa.
As seen in their latest lookbook, Nyumbani Design’s jewellery range features hand-sculpted pieces made from different sections of wood, making each piece slightly different and unique in colour, ensuring that no two pieces are the same.
After forming a partnership with an environmental project, Trees for the Future, for every wooden piece sold a tree will be planted in Tanzania to restore and support the plantation of trees with rural communities in the developing world.
Nyumbani design’s name originates from the KiSwahili word for ‘home’ and has become a focal point for her design aesthetic.
