The story behind the art:
Reimagining the aesthetics of sustainable, ethical fashion, this collection of jewelry is handmade by artisans in village communities in India, often times using eco-friendly materials.
Asha - meaning "hope" in Sanskrit - embodies a brand with a hope for the talented artisans in village communities throughout India, where ideas are brought to life through the art of handcrafted, one-of-a-kind products.
Asha gives the artisans an opportunity to improve their living standards and continue with their livelihoods through dignified commerce opportunities.
Asha also provides training and teaching facilities, establishing new local groups of craftsmen, creating a sustainable future for carrying on the tradition of Indian handicrafts.
About the Artists:
India has always been renowned for its rich silk fabrics, woodcarvings and carpets. However, many of these products are produced in conditions of abject poverty for the craftsmen, exploited by large producers and moneylenders.
Asha Handicrafts is a not-for-profit making body, based in Mumbai, India, working to promote Fair Trade and Fair Trade practices.
As a member organization of the The World Fair Trade Organization, Asha Handicrafts ensures that the benefits of handicraft production reach the craftspeople themselves.
