We are a jewelry company that focuses on super lightweight and hypoallergenic earrings and necklaces hand-beaded by our team at Medellin, Colombia. YES! COLOMBIA!!
After being exposed to the beautiful jewelry of the region, we decided that we wanted to collaborate with artists to share their art with everyone in the world starting with the United States. In May 2019, Kawami started out as an Instagram page. Quickly, we noticed we had the perfect opportunity to create a bigger impact overall. In January 2020, we became an official company in the US, and we have been growing ever since. Now, we have our own production site at Medellin and headquarters in Chicago, Illinois.
We aspire to be the brand that is the main source of premier Artistry wear. We strongly believe that when you wear Kawami you are wearing art that is filled with color and energy. Which is the same energy that later embraces and magnifies the beauty and confidence of the people who wear our earrings.
Our Founders both from Latin America (Colombia and Mexico), they traveled to the US to seek out opportunities that the world has to offer. They met in college and decided to create Kawami in their sophomore year! Kawami was a perfect opportunity to grow, learn, and combinate all of their passions: entrepreneurship, global impact, arts, communication, and much more!
We invite you to join us in this beautiful journey with Kawami. #KawamiFam
