#TUESDAYTALE: HANDCRAFTED IN HIMALAYAS
It is so wonderful to see brands revive tales of the past and connect them with our present. Kaligarh, a brand that brings you jewelery inspired by the people of Himalayas does an excellent job of reviving an old history to mould their pieces for the women of today. They pay tribute to the art & artisans of the Himalayan region & each of their products are handmade by small-scale artisans in this region.
The story of the brand and its values are as imperative as the designs while making a buying decision, for most millennial women. Would you ever wear something that you know is not ethically sourced? Probably not and even if you do, there's absolutely no chance that you'd feel good about it.
One of the reasons we love the jewellery from Kaligarh because of their ethos & ethics. They source ethically and believe in sustainable fashion, empowering their artisans in the process of manufacturing their products. It feels great to be associated with a brand that really cares about their artisans and somehow it shows in the jewellery that they make.
Take a look at the Sinkhwa cuff for instance, it's a simple piece that exudes elegance & craftsmanship in great volumes. Just the feeling that this piece was handcrafted by someone makes us feel so special and that it was made with an empowering thought adds the cherry on the cake. You can get this cuff delivered before Christmas if you order before 14th December, what are you waiting for?
