"Aasha" means hope in Hindi. Aasha is a 100% sustainable jewelry line made by an artisan group of economically disadvantaged women. Using discarded saris and wrapping them over small wooden beads these women are able to create a very unique and colorful collection of jewelry. The wooden beads are scraps sourced from furniture factories nearby, and the fabric used to cover them comes from old, worn saris, collected all over India! No two beads will be the same.
Individually handcrafted by artisans in India using traditional techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation. Their mission is to create unique, hand-crafted products that blend traditional craftsmanship with modern trends. Anju is committed to creating hope for artisans through economic empowerment. By partnering with artisan groups, they are able to provide an economic opportunity to them and their families in an environment that supports cultural heritage, creative expression, and fair-trade practices.
