Add some color and texture to your favorite outfit! This incredible jewelry starts with ethically sourced, upcycled cattle horn. No animals are harmed for this jewelry. Cows are sacred in India and their horn is repurposed after they pass away of natural causes. This bone is cut and colored with natural dyes into fun and unique shapes. Those fun shapes are then paired with metal to make jewelry that will quite literally turn heads.
The challenges for many artisans are daunting. In India, their situation is especially challenging. Poverty is an immense problem, and the caste system makes it especially difficult to improve their economic situation. It's not only a matter of making a fair income, but having an income that's consistent. This requires a unique blend that marries their craftsmanship with a modern flair that makes their products highly marketable. When done well, like through this cooperative, the partnership supports cultural heritage, creative expression, and fair trade practices, while making you look fabulous.
