We’re thrilled to announce the launch of Jalawi, our up-cycled snare wire jewellery line.
All proceeds from Jalawi sales benefit the Wildlife Emergency Response Unit whose job includes removing snares set by poachers from wild animals and treating their injuries. Rhinos and elephants are often targeted for their horns and ivory tusks to feed a global illegal wildlife trade which is threatening many species with extinction.
The snare wire jewellery is made by a local women’s artisan collective, providing them with an income too. They’re making them as fast as they can, but we sold out at recent fairs in Lilongwe, so you may have to wait a while to get your hands on some! Please email us if you would like to go on the waiting list. This project was started with funds from our friends at the Born Free Foundation.
