As you know I love fashion and I’m always on the lookout for exquisite accessories to add to my wardrobe so when Harjit introduced me to her gorgeous and ethical brand Jewelled Buddha I fell head over heels for their stunning necklaces and scarfs.
From the Hands of Artisan to You.
Jewelled Buddha was created by Harjit Sohotey-Khan in 2015 after she embarked on a trip of a lifetime with her husband. They both quit their jobs and travelled around Asia for 1 year. Whilst they were travelling through Asia it occurred to Harjit that “there was an inherent value in handmade products. A story woven or crafted into everything that was made” the complete opposite to the ready made fast fashion of the West.
Jewelled Buddha doesn’t work with suppliers who employ child-labour or subject their workers to low pay or unacceptable working conditions.
They partner with House of Wandering Silk, a social enterprise based in India, who work with women’s cooperatives to ensure artisan communities are empowered by fair pay, safe working conditions and regular employment to enable them to support their families.
Jewelled Buddha offers a range of beautiful, unusual and one of a kind upcycled Vintage Sari Scarves and Sari Bead Necklaces, Ikat Scarves and Khadi Cotton Slip Dresses.
- Upcycled Vintage Sari Scarves & Sari Bead Necklaces
Handpicked vintage silk sari’s are chosen for their distinctive designs and vibrant colours, quality checked and delicately embellished with the centuries-old art form of Kantha Stitching. A once unused sari is transformed into a luxurious, beautiful and sustainable scarf. Any unused material is then recycled yet again to make our stunning sari bead necklaces.
- Ikat Scarves
Handwoven by master craftsmen in Uzbekistan , these luxurious scarves are literally a work of art. Using ancient hand-weaving and resist-dying techniques Ikat scarves are renowned the world over for their bold and vibrant designs. Our Ikat Scarves are sourced directly from the artisans at the price requested.
- Khadi Cotton Slip Dresses
“Khadi” a term for handspun, handwoven cotton is more than just cloth, It’s a whole movement originally created by Mohandas Gandhi. This fragile thread of cotton became a symbol of strength and self-sufficiency during India’s struggle for freedom.
Cool in the summer and warm in the winter, our stylish Khadi slip dresses feature an upcycled silk sari yoke.
Harjit kindly offered to send me one of their Sari Bead Necklaces to review and I have to say it took me quite a while to be able to choose one from their amazingly beautiful selection. I ended up choosing the 12 String Sari Bead Necklace in Emerald.
When the necklace arrived it was elegantly wrapped and it looked even more beautiful and delicate than I was expecting. The necklace is the perfect accessory to add some colour and vibrancy to my otherwise very minimal and neutral coloured wardrobe.
If you are looking for gorgeous, delicate and ethically sourced accessories to add to your wardrobe you need to check out Jewelled Buddha. Their website is full of beautiful pieces for you to choose from. I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
