Tamarind wood is native wood from Africa but is being cultivated in many places in southeast Asia. The Tamarind fruit is used in both Thai and Indonesian cooking and is also used for many cosmetic products. Most of the wood we use is from local sourcing from different plantations, some for timber but also fruit and oil plantations once the trees become too old to produce they sell them to us.
Brass is a metal alloy from copper and zinc that has a yellow orange color very similar to that of gold. Brass have been used in Asia for body piercing jewelry for over 2,000 years and we are proud to continue with this great tradition. As a lot of brass is recycled in Asia you cannot be sure on the metal content, but we only use imported nickel-free and lead free brass from Italy and Germany that has been specifically processed for high quality jewelry production. By ensuring our brass quality we don't have to coat our brass with any lacquer which is very common with brass jewelry produced in our region.

Valmistaja: Organic Jewelry - kestävän kehityksen periaatteella vastuullisesti valmistettuja koruja
Koruissa käytetty puu on kestävästi kerätty eikä mitään uhanalaisia puita käytetä. Yrityksellä on omia metsiä, joissa koruihin käytetty puu kasvaa; puita ei kerätä luonnontilaisista sademetsistä. Jokaista kaadettua puuta kohden istutetaan kaksi uutta puuta.
Suuri osa myynnistä palaa rahana takaisin paikallisyhteisöihin. Yritys on mukana erilaisissa yhteiskunnallisissa kehityshankkeissa ja auttaa paikallisia taloudellisesti mm. rakentamaan uusia kouluja. Yritys vastustaa ehdottomasti lapsityövoimaa.

We are making considerable contributions to help protecting rainforest. We believe using endangered trees and cutting down our precious rainforest is a serious criminal offense. We have our own plantations where environmentally sustainable trees are produced for our organic body jewelry line. We always give back what we take. In our continuous effort to save the world we have a 2 for 1 policy in which we guarantee that we plant 2 trees back for every tree we take from our plantation. In this way we make our contribution to a more environment friendly future and help decreasing harm done by green house gasses.
We produce our products in remote areas of Indonesia and Thailand where local expertise still fuels traditional techniques of hand carving jewelry. After years of research we have now created our own factories where highly skilled and experienced locals are doing what they do best; hand carving with great care and finesse a unimaginable beautiful piece of art what is known to you as our exquisite line of organic jewelry. In our production we use natural raw materials that locals have used for thousands of years. Far and away from the modern world we found local people that are capable of creating and producing jewelry combining our ultra modern designs with traditional carving ways that can only be learned by passing them on from generation to generation.
We have always taken a strong stand against certain injustices in our world. That's why we aggressively fight against child labor. Our team ensures that our organic jewelry line is produced without any involvement of anyone under the age of 18.
We have been awarded and praised for our harsh stand against certain injustices in our modern world. We will continue our effort to make our world a better place.
