Nahua Apo Earrings - Arctic
Handmade ethnic earrings, hand-embroidered with silk thread, adorned with brass sequins and Japanese beads, with soft leather lining and anti-allergenic hook.
Nahua jewellery is the result of a close collaboration between founder Isabelle Moya and an Indian familial embroidery atelier, which was about to disappear. With the common goal of preserving, supporting and sharing a unique artistry, Nahua was created. Using a rare vertical embroidery technique, each of their accessories carries the history of a noble craftsmanship as old as the first Maharajas. It is a technique normally applied to the making of Indian ceremonial clothing and army uniforms which Nahua has transferred to the world of accessories.
Each accessory is embroidered completely by hand by craftsman who have been taught by their relatives. It is a lovely story and one that allows numerous Indian families to keep making a living from their specific art. We are proud to be a UK stockist of this unique, eclectic and truly stunning jewellery.
