Meaning & Purpose:
Studio Ocra is a multidisciplinary design studio based in Brooklyn, New York. Their aesthetic is characterized by attention to details, with a love for sustainable materials and natural textures. Founders, Valeria and Andrea, have always been fascinated by the craft work of ancient techniques, so partnering to design a collection for KAZI was an easy decision. Their charming KAZI collection is elegant and inspiring. This product was handmade by an artisan in rural Rwanda, over a period of days in her home. The sale of this product means a fair wage and an opportunity to provide for her family where few job opportunities exist. By pairing market access with training and education, KAZI artisans are earning 10x traditional wages and are transforming into well respected business leaders in their communities, helping lead and create a positive future.
Kazi is on a mission to create the world's most beautiful gifts, handmade by master craftsman in rural Africa. Modern design meets traditional techniques. Kazi designs on-trend conversational wall statements, serveware and lighting which are then translated into natural fibers through direct work with skilled weavers.
