Yala Jewellery is an African jewellery brand designed for the modern woman. The brand creates ethical jewellery that is created to last, with collaborators who are paid fairly and materials that are eco-friendly. Yala's small batch collections are made exclusively for the brand, and create as little environmental impact as possible.
Yala Jewellery is the first jewellery company in the UK to be officially certified as B Corp. This certification is awarded to businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.
Founder Audrey Migot-Adholla started Yala Jewellery to challenge common misconceptions about Kenya and its people.
She says, "I also wanted to prove that sustainability and profitability are not mutually exclusive. The challenges I face are those commonly encountered by people of colour trying to make their way in an industry where those with the power do not see or do not understand our potential."
