These sustainable, eco-friendly bangles have been handcrafted by artisans from Channapatna (a small town in Southern India) using the 200 year old toy craft of lac turnery. The bangles are made of lightweight wood and the colours are natural, plant-based dyes. The bangles come in a set of two.

 

The bangles are handcrafted using time-honoured traditional skills, initially introduced by Persian toy makers. The age old craft was in danger of dying but is now protected as a geographical indication (GI) under the World Trade Organization, and supported by the Dutch Government. Various social enterprises have also been instrumental in reviving the Channapatna craft and today small-scale industries have been established to help artisans work on this art-form.

 

Buying this product will help keep the industry alive and support its artisans.

A perfect gift for anyone passionate about all things colourful. Great Summer accessory.
