Our newest collaboration: Kat & George for Senhoa -- the Enchanting Collection

We are excited to announce our latest collaboration: we have partnered with Kat & George, a UK based hair jewelry company, to create a beautiful collection of hair accessories. Kat & George is an alliance of jeweler Kat&Bee and hair stylist George Northwood. In October, Kat flew to Siem Reap to teach our artisans how to create the 7-piece collection she designed exclusively for Senhoa. The girls have never done anything like this so there was a learning curve but by day 3 they had picked up on the new skills that Kat had taught them.
 

"Everyone involved in the Kat&George for Senhoa collaboration has put in a lot of love and dedication into making it happen and now that is has I feel so proud to be part of the project.   The first hand experience of actually going to Cambodia to teach the artisans has been incredible, eye opening and life changing - one that I will always cherish.  I  feel that is has brought the project and pieces to life and am really excited to share it with everyone.  It was so lovely to see the artisans develop and adapt their skills and mindset over the course of the week and once this all clicked into place they were so overjoyed and had a great sense of satisfaction and personal achievement.  The Enchanting Knot, in particular, was a very difficult and complex piece to both teach and learn and so was challenging at times (for both!) but after serious dedication and concentration we got there in the end and I feel so proud that the artisans are now fully competent to make and produce the pieces" - Kat.



Kat&George for Senhoa brings together Kat&Bee's signature style with George Northwood's  innovative understanding of hair to create a collection that embodies beauty, love and togetherness.   The Enchanting Collection by Kat&George for Senhoa embodies beauty, sophistication and elegance.   Each piece has been carefully crafted by Senhoa artisans with an abundance of beautiful beads, Swarovski crystals that will sit in your hair and shine.  Using a strong mix of gothic colours - mauves, grey, black, gold and silver - these pieces are positively enchanting. The Kat & George for Senhoa collection will be available online at senhoa.org, senhoa.co.uk, katandgeorge.co.uk and katandbee.co.uk on Tuesday, December 1.
