When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves. Buddha
These colorful and kaleidoscopic earrings, a customer favorite, are uniquely made by artisans in India from recycled Kantha textiles. Kantha fabric made from recycled saris is wrapped around wooden beads, accented with sparkling brass charms.
Because kantha fabric uses layers of sari, kantha quilts are unique reflections of the individuality of their makers. Saris are also considered to be one of the oldest types of garment, worn in India for over 5,000 years.
Allow these colorful earrings to remind you of the beauty of human diversity, and the power of the creative spirit to transform raw material into joyful art.
