Behind the Design: Tucked away amidst shady banana trees, in the heart of the Krofrom village, lies Krofrom Brass—the artisan workshop behind our handcrafted recycled brass collection. The artisans of Krofrom Brass are experts in the ancient art of lost-wax casting: a technique which involves using beeswax as a model to create metal objects. The artisans coat the beeswax in palm fiber and clay (leaving an opening at the bottom) and place it over a fire so that the beeswax will melt and seep out—leaving behind an empty cast in the shape of the item they wish to make. The artisans then pour in melted recycled brass, wait for it cool and harden, and, finally, crack open the mold. The end results? Beautifully detailed golden shapes that are eco-friendly too!

The artisan sector is the second largest employer in the developing world. Yet the majority of artisans are women who lack access to export markets, business skills, and the financial tools needed to run successful, global enterprises.
We are dedicated to changing that by investing 100% of our profits into education programs for the women who handcraft our products and youth in their communities. Since 2007, we've provided over 1,100 artisans and 250 young people in Rwanda & Ghana with employment opportunities, entrepreneurship training, and consistent access to the global export market.
