 Story

Forged in the heart of Nairobi by our artisan partner, Sylvester, our debut collection of brass flatware has been made from 100% upcycled brass—discarded taps, padlocks and old coins that would have otherwise ended up in the junkyard.

Sustainability is always our priority at Obakki, so we love the concept of taking something forgotten and turning it into something beautiful and new.

Product Care

MEET THE ARTISAN

The Blacksmith from Nairobi

Sylvester

Sylvester grew up hearing stories about the work his father had done as a blacksmith to support their family. He remembers being fascinated by the idea of working with metal, and at a young age decided to learn the trade as a way to carry his father’s legacy forward.

Now, many years later as a father of five children himself, Sylvester’s work is truly anchored in tradition. Blacksmithing is more than just his livelihood, it’s his defining passion.

Working from a small shop in the heart of Nairobi, he speaks of his goal to one day open a center where he can teach underprivileged young people the art of blacksmithing “If I can teach other kids they will be empowered to use jewelry to create a life for themselves”.

A true artisan, Sylvester inspires us not only with his beautiful handmade work, but with his dream of being able to use his craft to change the lives of those around him.
