Our Story

Tinkered by is a social impact brand, sourcing superior quality handmade Jewellery & accessories from Artisans in East Africa. We have curated a stunning range of product that serves as a testament to traditional craftsmanship, culture & style. Artisan empowerment and social impact is baked into the very essence of our business model & the products we sell. The Jewellery is 100% hand made using up-cycled and/ or raw materials, each individual piece tells a proud & traceable story. We like to think of ourselves as the Tinkered by family, looking after our producers needs and our customers. Welcome to our global family, we are very excited to introduce you to our ground level, innovative approach to sustainable fashion. Creating products that better the world & using business to inspire change.

Tinkered by is the concept of two Australian sisters, Rachael Steadman and Kate Boston. One living remotely in Western Australia, the other in Kenya’s Masai Mara game reserve. Both, at home mums with young children, and both were looking for a meaningful home business to help support their families and those they work with. They decided to pull their skills together to launch a social enterprise and online store.
