Frequently Asked Questions
What are your earring wires made of?
Our metal earring wires are made from a brass metal mix that is free of lead, nickel and cadmium.
What do you mean by "colors & patterns will vary" on your Kantha Jewelry and Repurposed Textile Accessories?
Your item will not look exactly like the photo! The size, shape and silhouette will be consistent, but the exact colors and patterns of each items are unique since they are made from repurposed fabric that is one-of-a-kind.
Will the Kantha fabric wear off the beads?
Our Kantha Jewelry can last for years if care is taken when wearing and storing. Over time, it is possible that some of the repurposed cotton fabric can pull away from the wooden beads and begin to fray a little. This is more likely to happen with the Kantha stretchy bracelets as they receive more wear and tear than necklace and earring styles. Many of our customers have reported that they like the look of the wood showing through and that it adds to the textile's story.
Why do you work with women artisans in India rather than the United States?
There are so many amazing places to purchase US-made jewelry like Etsy and most American jewelry designers have their own websites making it easy to purchase directly. Our social mission business was founded to support vulnerable artisans in India that don't have those same options, so we have created the opportunity for them to receive dignified work and fair wages to help break the cycle of poverty and ensure they and their children have a better future. We are supporting women and communities in the United States by providing them a product to sell & make a living from.
