Episode 049 – Founded in 2002, Katy and her husband Philip are the owners and pioneers of the natural, African-made, sustainable jewelry and elegant, handcrafted products called The Leakey Collection.
Based in the Rift Valley of Kenya, East Africa, these renowned designers use natural elements of fallen wood, sustainable grass and “bush fired” porcelain to create uniquely exotic products. Each colorful piece contains vibrant design appeal while giving back to those that produce it.
Katy’s motto: Nature Is Our Inspiration – People Are Our Purpose
Purchasing a product from The Leakey Collection helps create women entrepreneurs. This in turn, helps educate children, raises the level of health in communities and brings pride and power to rural East African women.
One product you may recognize are the Zulugrass necklaces that you see in gift/accessories shops all across America.
