Derived from Amharic lingo, ‘Almaz‘ means diamonds. Like diamonds, the African beauty grows stronger under pressure. Diamonds being rough-edged, were mistaken as mere pebbles. And with the distinctive African culture and beauty lasting for centuries, this collection is reflective to the precious gem.
