Zaarga, in association with 'Miharu', presents a POP-UP SALE of handcrafted brass jewelry made in Bengal's traditional craft - Dokra.
The Saharan collection is inspired by the aesthetics of the wild tribes and ancient times of West Africa.The designs are brainstormed individually, skilled craftsmen then proceed to make these handmade jewellery from long strips of coiled wax. Then these motifs are moulded out of wax, and ‘baked’ in local Bhattis. Then these beads are incorporated to beautifully braided cotton and silk threads by groups of women to produce unique designer hand crafted jewellery.
With inspiration available in aplenty, it’s up to organisations like Miharu to reinterpret, design, and create jewellery in an effort to revive the lost wax process. Artisans, designers and weavers had to do layers of work and show a lot of craftsmanship to complete each piece.
Limited Stock. Available from June 22 - July 1, 2018.
