Yala Studio is an ethical and sustainable accessories brand inspired by the Kenyan heritage of our founder Audrey.
Our mission is to reduce excess consumption through beautifully made items that are designed to last.Your wardrobe and accessories should be an investment in your personal style, and it’s worth paying a little extra for quality items. Looking good isn’t worth any negative impact on people or the planet so Yala will only partner with production facilities that pay their staff a fair, living wage and are committed to being socially and environmentally responsible.
We focus on small batch production, both to minimise environmental impact, and also to ensure outstanding quality. Every Yala product is either handmade or hand-finished so small irregularities are normal and give each item its own unique look.
As for the name, Yala is one of Audrey’s favourite places in the world – it’s the town in Kenya where her grandmother lives.
