Our range of Sari Necklaces are made from the sari fabric left after the production of Kantha Sari Scarves.
The most striking colours and prints are used. These remnants are first matched, piece-by-piece, with colourful cotton thread, and then sewn into narrow, double-layered tubes. Our artisans fill these tubes with wooden prayer beads, hand-stitching each bead into place with the thread.
The jhumkas are vintage metal tassels, made and used by the nomadic gypsy Banjara community of India. The jhumkas are used to decorate clothing and as jewellery by the Banjara women and are handpicked in the markets of Delhi.
Made from sheesham wood prayer beads covered in remnants of up-cycled silk sari fabric and hand-finished with bright cotton thread after each bead. The jhumka is made from a metal alloy.
Eco: use of recycled silk saris reduces waste.
Ethical: handwork provided by marginalised women and men who are provided regular work, a living wage, safe and flexible working conditions and training.
