Designers: @ Jacaranda Style

These are few stunning pieces made out of ostrich egg shell.

The egg shell is collected after the ostrich chick hatches.

The artisan is the heart of Jacaranda Style. (Says their website!)

Artisans are from South Africa.

Supporting artists and creating meaningful employment is an integral part of Jacaranda Style’s mission.

Dori Rootenberg is the founder and sole curator of the Jacaranda Style collection.

A portion of every sale is donated to the Ethembeni School for disabled children in South Africa.
