This Fair Trade recycled keyring has been skillfully made out of recycled Tusker Lager bottletops, then combined with a colour co-ordinated, recycled magazine paper bead.
• Using a blend of creativity, design and innovation, bottle tops are collected locally in western Kenya and are cleaned, pressed to flattern and then formed into various shapes by local artisans.
• Each keyring is made out of two bottle tops, so the Tusker design features on each side.
• The design is finished-off by adding 2 small glass beads at the top of the keyring, threaded onto recycled copper.
• Strong, practical and really unique - makes a great ethical gift for someone special.
This Fair Trade recycled keyring has been handmade with great care by artisans in Kenya and is part of a collectable range. (See below)

Zakale Creations, Kenya.
Zakale Creations is located in Huruma, part of the Mathare Valley on the outskirts of Nairobi, where about 80% of the population of 8,000 are unemployed.
There are now up to 20 full time employees working at this project - expanding to 35 when large orders are being worked on.
They buy beads from Excel Concepts, another local project and then make them into animal charm bracelets and necklaces using linen threads, brass and copper wire, or bottle top items.
The men work the recycled copper "wire" then pass it to the ladies who add the bone or glass beads decoration.
The items are then passed back to the men for finishing.
The team makes these unique recycled Guinness bottle top earrings.
