LET'S SPREAD GOOD VIBES, PEOPLE
HIITU's philosophy is based on this simple but heartfelt message. It begins with the love and dedication that we put into the design of each of our small and unique collections and continues with a clear focus on fair and respectful collaborations with our artisans and manufacturers. In doing so, we encourage a creative exchange, which generates harmony on an intercultural level. HIITU stands for products that are made to become your favourite piece and accompany you for a long time. That’s why we use natural, high quality and responsibly sourced materials. We hope that the positive energy created with our conscious production process will reach you and from there those “good vibes” keep spreading!

HIITU means “feather” in Caddo, the language of our Native American ancestors. In their tradition feathers form the wings with which we can transcend from our earthly realities and limitations into the heights of creativity.

SO LET'S GET CREATIVE
Pick-N-Mix Choker Gold Multi
African style choker with a mix of fair-trade ceramic beads, horn and brass elements
This choker set comes with a selection of fair-trade ceramic beads, highly polished Ankole cow horn and brass elements that you can mix and match however you like! Make it match your mood and outfit – from a simple golden necklace to an eccentric colourful statement piece for a hippie look. The different elements can simply be added or removed by unscrewing one of the balls at the end of this diy necklace. The colourful ceramic beads are hand-rolled and painted by our fair-trade manufacturer Kazuri. The neck choker is handmade by the team of Urban Artefacts, a small artisanal brass workshop for African style jewellery in Nairobi. Check out our article on colour symbolism to get inspired!
Please note that the horn is a natural product that varies in color from white to brown and black - each piece is a one of a kind and may differ to the picture.
