THE ETHICS

The Brand Story

Yala is an award-winning African jewellery brand designed for the modern woman. Winner of “Jewellery Brand of the Year” in the 2019 Sustainable Lifestyle Awards and the very first jewellery company in the UK to become a Certified B Corporation.

Yala is the vision of Audrey Migot-Adholla. Born in Kenya and based in Bristol, UK with her husband, Audrey splits her time between the two countries. The brand is named after the town in Kenya where her grandmother lived.From beadwork to wax prints, Audrey turned her passion for accessories into Yala.

It was her dream to create a business that worked with local artisans and showcased their skills across the world.Yala is the product of that dream. Their goal is to challenge the common misconceptions about Africa and its people through beautiful design, entrepreneurship and creative talent.

Today, Audrey works directly with over 150 artisans in Kenya, ensuring they receive fair wages and real recognition for their talent. She is passionate about ensuring true transparency across the production process, and a genuine connection between the people who created Yala jewellery and our customers.

Recycled Brass & Reclaimed Cow Horn

Yala are conscious of using materials that have a low environmental impact in their collection. The pure recycled brass is hammered by hand. The brass plates are coupled with unique reclaimed cow horn pieces, and threaded with elongated gold fill ear wires to create a soft, swinging motion.

Made by artisans in Kenya

These earrings were made in a workshop just outside Nairobi. Yala work with George and his team of 15 artisans to create the intricate brass and horn elements of their collection.

George started his business after realising his skills with brass while working as a professional mechanic. He began with doorknobs and door handles, and over the years he progressed to accessories, buckles and jewellery.

Yala connect with their artisans on a personal level by visiting and keeping in touch with them - not just as colleagues, but as friends. They facilitate weekly workshop visits from team members based in Kenya to ensure everyone has a safe, happy work environment to create their high quality jewellery.
