Repurposed Kantha and Sari textiles are carefully selected in one hue and sorted before the artisans can make the beads that form this gorgeous salmon bracelet. Looks great alone or layered with other colors in the Kantha Chromatics Collection. 

+ Each piece is made from recycled textiles, so tones and patterns are all one-of-a-kind and will vary.

+ Beads measure ⅜’’ wide; stretches to fit most wrists.

+ Sustainably handmade by women artisans in India.

Kantha quilts are a traditional textile found in abundance in India. They are made from layers of worn cotton saris, sewn together with a distinctive, allover running stitch. Artisans transform the fabric scraps into beads for jewelry, which provides new life to a textile that is often discarded.

Step 1:Each Kantha bead has a base made of wood, carved out of scraps gathered from a local furniture factory. Sustainable sourcing at it's best!

Step 2:Artisans then hand cover each wooden bead with a colorful piece of Kantha fabric, attaching them securely with a safe adhesive. Excess fabric is trimmed off, and the bead is complete.

Step 3:Once a number of beads have been crafted, they are strung together into a necklace, wrapped with wire and added into a cuff bracelet, or transformed into an earring, often incorporating modern elements like metallic paillettes, brass metal accent beads, or mixed-metal seed beads. Artisans assort the beads so the final piece of jewelry has a unique array of colors and patterns. The result is a Kantha design as unique as the artisan that crafted it!
