Callia Jewelry’s hand-made Kitaka Passport Wallet features genuine leather in purple, fuschia and indigo. Callia’s partner artisans in Burkina Faso hand-dye this stunning marbled leather using a multi-layer artisanal dying process. NOTE: No two pieces are exactly the same. The exact colors and patterns of the hand-dyed leather vary by piece. This makes each piece truly one-of-a-kind!
The Kitaka passport cover takes its name from the earth goddess of the Baganda people of Uganda. Callia is an ethical jewelry brand that applies fair trade principals to empower low-income women in the Ivory Coast, West Africa. Callia Jewelry trains rural women’s associations to produce and supply organic beads. It then trains urban women artisans to design and craft these beads into high-end, handmade beaded jewelry. These women also participate in technical training on production and design, to develop their professional skills. Callia’s jewelry is empowering a new generation of African women artisans to drive social and economic change. Each piece of Callia Jewelry that you buy generates income that enables Callia’s women suppliers and artisans to support their families.
