In Darfur, almost everyone wears at least one good luck amulet called a hijab. Some people wear a hundred of them or even more – around their neck, arms or waist. People believe these amulets help them survive, protect them from evil and bring them luck. They’re made from camel leather by kujurs, the village shamans.
We bought the necklaces from Sudanese women and girls for a fair price, thus helping them improve their families’ budgets. All necklaces are handmade, crafted with love and dedication. Wearing them will make you feel great because they’re beautiful and because you’ll have done something good.
