Tribal Island jewelry, decorative items, and clothing are handmade by us using products sourced from native, tribal, or island peoples from around the world. We strongly believe in supporting woman entrepreneurs. Our jewelry is made using beads and fabrics made and purchased from native peoples. The focal bead shown here is handmade by women in Uganda, and their small businesses are often the sole support of a woman and her children in poor or disadvantaged areas of Africa. The beads are made from paper scraps that the woman collect and then hand roll into lovely beads. The beads are glued and varnished to set the color and design. A percentage of the profits of every necklace, bracelet, and pair of earrings made by us and sold at Tribal Island will be donated to non-profit organizations who support the woman in their endeavors to raise their families out of poverty.
