Mulberry Mongoose is a group of 7 courageous ladies and 1 gentleman in rural Zambia who hand craft extraordinary jewellry with a strong conservation purpose.
With every piece of jewellery sold they make a donation to antipoaching patrols to help remove the snare wire traps that kill and injure many of the area’s iconic wildlife.
By buying Mulberry Mongoose accessories, you’re helping raise thousands of dollars for this vital work to save elephants, big cats and antelope.
Their hand craft jewellery reflects the grace and ruggedness of the unique South Luangwa valley in each piece they make by transforming brutal poachers' snare wire, collected in by anti-snare patrols, into jewellery.
They have won attention from celebrities and leading publications including National Geographic, Marie Claire US and Departures because they transform brutal poachers' snare wire, collected in by anti-snare patrols, into jewellery.
The workshop is located on a well-worn elephant path in the South Luangwa, a world renowned safari national park.
This process requires innovation, strength and tenacity and their creations are a testament to the team’s work ethic and commitment. They believe in creating jewellery from local materials such as hand crafted wooden beads mixing these with semi-precious stones to create a sophisticated African look that puts money back into the local economy.
With every piece of jewellery sold, they donate back towards anti snare patrols and have contributed over $100,000 to conservation since they started in 2013.
