Style Ethics: Kora

Designer duo Maxandra Short and Amy Walker have managed to turn super-chic horn cuffs into a feel-good-fashion purchase with their new line Kora. The gorgeous cuffs, which are handmade by local artisans in Rwanda and Kenya (where kora means “work”), are created using 100% sustainable materials – brass from repurposed wire, recycled glass, aluminum from old cars, and horn salvaged from area butches. Each cuff is a unqiue piece of wearable art all on its own – but I fully intend on piling on at least three! Shop it here!
