Description

Organza, silk in its rawest form is a great canvas to showcase intricate supplementary weft motifs. It still has sericin, a natural protective protein on silk fibres, that gives it a stiff texture. You all know and love our organza wall hangings, but did you know that sometimes, we are left with remnants ? Though beautiful, we did not know what to do with them… Until we met our friends from Tremani! Herman and Phet make beautiful jewelry, also from remnants of the finest wood. 

This pair of earrings features the zigzag motif. Very popular in Lao textiles, it can be found in many of our textiles and is often associated with mountains or running water (rivers). Add flair to your outfit with these earrings AND a matching bracelet!

We hope you enjoy this zero waste collaborative collection featuring earrings, bracelets and necklaces. 

More about Tremani

Tremani’s jewelry is made of thin layers of wood veneer that are glued in a mold. The result is a sturdy yet light wooden object, which forms the basis of a piece that they develop into a unique work of art. Glued in layers, wood veneer cannot crack. It is strong, resilient and lightweight at the same time.

The wood veneer they use comes from a veneer factory where it is processed for the furniture industry. They work with a wide selection of the finest grades of wood. Each piece is handmade and unique even though a mold is used. 

For this collection, all the silver used is made in Laos. The other metal parts are made of copper or zinc with a flash coating, and are lead, nickel and cadmium free, as required by European standards.
