MARCHESA NECKLACE

Arrange whatever pieces come your way. —Virginia Woolf

 

The moon was the brightest that night. You discovered a charming cabin on the lake for the weekend. Just you and your book laying on the couch with only the lamp light on.

 

You almost drifted off to a satisfying dream when you hear a knock on the door. It’s Grace, the girl who tends to your room and she says, “Come with me. There are dancers here.” You grab your Marchesa; you want to look presentable, not sleepy! You follow her in the moonlight across the resort grounds and she leads you to a group performing for the hunters beneath the starlit sky with the glass lake glimmering in the background.

 

These women were getting their groove on, singing and dancing to young men beating drums. The way they move their hips is so sexy you swear their torso is not connected to their hips! You shed all inhibitions and jump up to join them. The women clap their hands with you, shout and laugh. You move your legs, shake your body and lift your arms to the star-filled sky.

 

It was a magical night. Now every time you wear your Marchesa you are reminded of the last time you truly felt alive.

MEASUREMENTS Bib is 6″ x 3″ at its longest and widest points and the necklace cord measures 22″. Length is adjustable.

Artisans train to make our designs on a regular basis to meet the high quality standards we require. Designs can take a woman between 3 - 5 days to create depending on how intricate the weave is. Our team monitors production throughout the process to minimize corrections on a finished product, saving time and money.


Songa's designs are created using carefully selected natural materials that are locally sourced and eco-friendly. We use sisal plant, banana leaf, recycled paper, upcycled fabric and re-purposed cow horn that would otherwise end up in landfills. These materials ensure the highest quality design all while keeping in mind future generations who will inherit our planet.


'Songa' means 'the path forward' in Swahili. Each design the women make furthers them along the path of financial independence. "I thank those who buy my products because I was able to build a good house. I now have 12 pigs too!" - Harriette, paper bead artisan


"Songa is all about showcasing the woman artisan. They create beautiful designs from natural fibers!" Natalie@sustainablychic


We are proud to have been featured in some of the fashion industry's most respected magazines.
