The art of jewelry making is as old as the Indian civilization itself. For centuries women have been adorned in intricate, ornamental designs. The innovative techniques and designs have evolved over time but the jewelry remains true to Indian culture and traditions.
This 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.
About SLATE + SALT
Traditional techniques meet modern design with SLATE + SALT’s collection of one-of-a-kind pieces. The brand was founded by Lyndsay, a travel junkie who fell in love with the people, cultures, and craftsmanship she encountered exploring off the beaten path villages across Southeast Asia. She shares an ever-evolving selection of designs from her personal relationships with talented artisans in 14 countries and counting! These artisans create beautiful blankets, towels, pillows, wall hangings and more to enhance your home. With many of these artisans living in areas of extreme poverty, SLATE + SALT follows all of the principles of fair trade to pay them fair wages and offer their authentic crafts to a global market. This benefits everyone—the wider consumer pool is good for the makers, but it also means we get to admire their beautiful creations!
