We are based in the rural town of Shrewsbury, Shropshire in the UK although our collars, leather accessories, and beaded jewellery are all made thousands of miles away in the small town of Gilgil in Kenya by The Sanata Women's Group. The profit they generate goes directly to Restart Africa, a charity that rescues abandoned and vulnerable children.

The Making of the MZURI Collection
The MZURI DOG Colllection (Mzuri Dog means Good Dog in Swahili) is a selection of beautiful beaded leather collars, leads and accessories. Each piece is individually handmade and beaded by the Sanata Women’s Group in Gilgil Kenya.
Using traditional African skills, colourful beads are hand stitched with strong bonded nylon onto the soft Nappa leather. Once the design has been completed the beaded Nappa leather is carefully machine stitched onto the soft leather lining.
Each buckle, O ring and D ring is individually hand forged by a local metal worker which means it can take two or three days to make one collar and no two collars are identical! We have named some of the designs after the ladies in the group so there is a real connection between the women and the collars.
We would like to thank all of our customers personally for helping to make such a diference to the lives of so many women and their families and for helping support the children rescued by the charity Restart Africa.
