The bold Riya Cuff is anything but understated. The playful motif is created with intricate handwoven metal beads and cotton thread. The perfect statement accessory for day to night and combines traditional Indian designs with modern elegance.
This Fair Trade collection of elegant, statement jewelry is handcrafted by a cooperative of women artisans located in rural areas around Delhi, Ghaziabad and Meerut India. The women, who were previously unemployed, are empowered with the means to earn a fair wage. They are able to work from home where they can also look after their children. The co-op doesn’t just give the artisans a source of income, but also provides respect in a society where women are viewed as second-class citizens. The artisans draw inspiration from traditional Indian jewelry designs and strive to retain the innate nature of each raw material while keeping a global audience in mind.
