Hello all! We told you last month that we’d be bringing you some fabulous new jewellery lines, and boy have we delivered! We are now very proud stockists of jewellery made by the brilliant artisans at Umtha.
Umtha is based in Cape Town, South Africa, and we’ve had our eye on their beautiful work for quite some time! They are a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation and they are committed to creating much-needed employment opportunities to disadvantaged communities, so it’s appropriate that the name ‘Umtha’ is actually a Xhosa word which means ‘ray of light’. They’ve certainly brought a ray of light to Evoke Africa’s virtual shelves! Their jewellery is innovative, glamorous and very high quality, often featuring unusual materials such as beads made from ostrich eggshell. You won’t find that on the high street!
We hope that you love Umtha jewellery as much as we do, and we can’t wait to see your reaction to our latest little pieces of Africa!
