"Clothing and jewellery that is sustainable in every aspect."
Kenyan-based fashion brand Lilabare was created in 2017 with a vision to create comfortable clothing and jewellery that is sustainable in every aspect.
The majority of fabrics Lilabare use are selected from post-manufacturing waste materials. Jersey fabrics are made in Kenya and dyed in neutral colours to reduce it’s water footprint and the brand’s signature brass beads are hand-crafted by artisans in Nigeria.
Lilabare avoids using any heavy-duty and therefore heavy-pollutant machinery. Every button, pendant and bead is created through a process of up-cycling metal sourced from old machinery, locks and other high-quality metal detritus. All of Lilabare’s jewellery pieces are vegan and handcrafted. Semi-precious stones are ethically mined, extracted in small blasts which allows the rock to regenerate.
All of Lilabare’s artisans, farmers, boomers, weaver and tailors are paid above average for their work.
