Each itsara jewel bears the imprint of the one who fashioned it
All the artisans are Karen, an ethnic group originally from Burma, they live in a beautiful village in northern Thailand: Na Saï.
They work in small groups of two to five people, often as a family and in a workshop at home.
The work of silver jewelry is carried out with respect for the craftsman.
The manufacture of pure silver jewelry that we offer is a tradition of the ethnic groups of the golden triangle: Laos, Thailand, Burma
Rich in a thousand-year-old know-how, these craftsmen perpetuate a unique craft in the world.
Karen craftsmen maintain the tradition and work with 99% pure silver, without mixture.
Thanks to the purity of silver, the metal is softer and manual work is easier. Almost without any moulding, all the jewels are made by cutting, striking, driving in, twisting, hammering, braiding and welding, with the mastery of thousand-year-old techniques.
Each piece carries within it the unique imprint of the one who shaped it.
The Karen craftsmen recreate the traditional jewelery of the ethnic groups of the golden triangle, using the same ancestral techniques. These ethnic jewels whose origins are lost in the mists of time are rich in symbols and stories
