ABOUT KITOKO LONDON
Handmade African jewellery, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings
How We Got Here
Kitoko London was founded with a clear vision to promote African creativity, craftsmanship and uniqueness.
KL was established in 2020 following a conversation between two sisters passionate about fashion. We had one goal in mind to provide a quality, affordable, smart, and reliable online store.
Our African root is well felt. Love for colours, materials and shapes gave birth to our dream. We wanted to offer our customers a piece of unique handmade jewellery. Our products are exclusively made in Africa.
Finding talented African designers/artisans was the right step to give life to our ideas. There is a lot of research behind every designer we find and propose to our customers.
We want to help communities' growth by supporting creatives. We want to ensure that African designers' ability and imaginary boldness are seen as they have much to say regarding know-how and fashion.
Particular attention is paid to products that are mainly made from recyclable materials but not only. Originality is at the centre of our selections and stylistic choices. We want to offer jewellery that does not only dare aesthetically but is experimental and shows freedom of expression.
Our passion for fashion and creativity drives us daily and continues to drive us into the future. We want you to be excited about these exclusive gems as we are. Processed and assembled all by hand with care and attention to make you feel special.
Since our first day in business, Kitoko London has been offering our customers the best selection of handmade African jewellery online at unbeatable prices. Our online store has become synonymous with quality, and we ensure a continuous variety of fantastic merchandise along with unique limited edition and seasonal items that fit any budget.
