'Matako' means 'bottom' in Tumbuka, the language of Northern Malawi.
These beautiful earrings are crafted by hand from recycled brass in a solar-powered workshop using unique and traditional metal working techniques.
We have partnered with YEWO in Malawi who believe that design should not sacrifice social responsibility. Every piece is thoughtfully made reflecting the beauty of Malawi, while creating jobs that encourage growth, financial stability and a family-like workplace.
Every YEWO order comes with a jewellery care card, and a polish pad to help maintain your item. Each piece is wrapped in a plant based compostable wrap and a linen bag. They are beautifully presented for gift giving or a gift to yourself!
