Local village artisans make ethical jewellery collection.
Kabiri has announced that it is exclusively stocking A Peace Treaty ethical jewellery collection online and in its three Central London stores.
A Peace Treaty is an evolving fashion jewellery range that is ethically produced. The brand’s first collection, Sunari (‘female goldsmith’ in the Pashto language), includes twelve Afghan inspired pieces made from 24 carat gold plate – motivated by the Kuchi nomadic tribes of Afghanistan and Turkoman tribes of Eastern Asia.
Each season, Farah Malik and Dana Arbib travel to a particular region facing socio-political strife, and employ local village artisans to re-define an accessory, creating limited edition pieces and collections.
Amulets and talismans of varying geometric shapes make an appearance in the collection in the form of pendants and earrings, as well as a selection of stackable and two-finger rings. The accessories aim to reflect the ‘authenticity of the aesthetic that inspired the design,’ which lends to a slightly rough and worn look, reminiscent of pieces ‘found in the trunks of a jeweller in an ancient bazaar in the Persian Empire’.
