About Us

Our Story 

At Kayrafet, we are more than just a jewelry brand; we are a celebration of Senegalese culture, fashion, and the enduring spirit of friendship. Our journey began with our Founder Fatima, a lover of everything Senegal, who wanted to share beautiful Dakar rings with her friends and community. You guys loved our rings, and consistently wanted to see more. Knowing the potential in this opportunity, Kayrafet was born. From one Senegalese girl to two Senegalese sisters who share a deep bond, a passion for creativity, and a dream to bring a piece of Senegal's rich heritage to you.

Founded through humble beginnings, Kayrafet started as a labor of love, with rings curated and sold at schools, local community events, and even from our very own bedroom and dorm rooms. As we saw our creations spark joy and admiration in the hearts of our customers, we realized that Kayrafet was destined for something greater. It had become a symbol of Dakar fashion and appreciation, a testament to the vibrant culture of Senegal. Together, Aisha and Fatima came together to share the love they both share for Dakar fashion, culture, and lifestyle through our brand!

Our Mission 

At Kayrafet, our mission is simple yet profound: to infuse the elegance and splendor of Senegalese art and culture into every piece of jewelry we sell. We aim to share the beauty, diversity, and timelessness of Senegal's fashion traditions with the world, and to do so with authenticity and respect. Some of our pieces are direct emblems of Senegalese art and others represent the class and timelessness of Senegalese fashion. Together, Kayrafet is destined to showcase what makes Dakar a diverse and beautiful city in Senegal.

The Baobab Tree:

An Inspiration
We have decided to highlight the baobab tree as the heart of our brand because its significance in Senegalese culture runs deep. In Senegal, the baobab is known as the "Tree of Life" and stands as a symbol of strength, wisdom, and longevity. Its towering presence in the landscape mirrors the resilience of the Senegalese people and their enduring connection to their roots. We see Kayrafet growing to become something big, something that continues to change and offer great contributions to our communities. We believe that true beauty lies in preserving Senegalese tradition while embracing innovation, and that’s the heart of Kayrafet.
