Kabila means tribe or community in Swahili. Our kabila designs were born with our desire to pay homage to West African artistry and cultures. This shared heritage is filled with traditional yet creative designs. Whether rich with spiritual or cultural symbolism or simply decorative, the West African kabala has had a tremendous influence in ornamental handicrafts throughout history.
You will feel totally Bohemian chic wearing our kabila statement belt. The onyx buckle was created to resemble the shadows of Lamu island’s palm fronds under a full moon’s light. The duo of palms is encased in 24 carat gold overlay and adorned with a trio of paired crescent moons and raised, etched palm leaf designs. The luxurious Italian black leather has intricate yellow and red side stitching which are the colours of the Kenyan flag and is seen throughout the region.
