This necklace has been made by hand incorporating traditional dori or string that has been dyed with natural colour and then neatly plaited. The pendant is beautiful vintage bells hand-finished with playful pompom tassels. Eighty people are involved at the factory site in Delhi, India where this fabulous necklace is made. Twenty are sub-contractors, and between fifty and sixty people are employed at the premies. Up to eight women work at home. The employers provide free meals to their workers, and overtime is available, as well as ESI and Provident Funding on top of statutory wages. When it is Diwali festival time the employer distributes clothes and sweets and they also celebrate other festive occasions. The supplier says "We plant trees to help provide a healthier environment for our employees and we are proud that we try to involve as many women artisans in our group to empower them. We are constantly looking for women who are unable to go out and search for work due to social pressure. We provide them with a kind of work, which they can easily do and still care for family and children.” For a unique piece of vintage history wrapped up in a totally modern style, choose this necklace.
