Tribal love

Posted on 01 March 2017

Adorning yourself in a unique tribal piece that has been handmade in a faraway land is just heavenly. Immersing myself in scouring the globe for intricate, bold, raw, statement works of glory is my passion and my latest finds are just that.

Our most recently discovered treasures are intricate creations from the Afghanistan and Pakistan regions, more specifically, by the Kuchi people. Traditionally known as romantic nomads swathed in silver and lapis jewellery, the lifestyle of Kuchis may be changing but their delicate craft continues.

Kuchi jewellery is influenced by many cultures and artisans incorporate gems,
coins, bells, beads and coloured glass to make exquisite head pieces, chokers,
cuffs, necklaces, rings, pendants, bags and more. 

Lapis lazuli is arguably the most famous gemstone found in the region.
The stunning deep blue stone is steeped in history and is one of the very
first gems to be used for jewellery.

How to wear it

Tribal can sometimes gets left in fashion’s “too hard basket” but it needn’t be. These pieces can be worn with just about anything – a bold necklace with a singular coloured maxi (like our Officer Maxi), a clutch embellished with beading and precious coins with a pair of vintage jeans and a kimono (like our When Life Gives You Lemons kimono). To be able to wear such a unique creation really is a sublime privilege that will leave you feeling heartfelt and empowered.
