This elegant cuff was designed and crafted by Thai Yao Tribe craftsmen. The cuff features a hammered effect and centered with copper metal for a two tone outcome. A tribal, yet modern style for any look. The cuff features an adjustable band for a custom fit.
Living in small communities in northern Thailand, the Yao Hill Tribe originally hail from Southern China. Their villages can often be found in mountainous areas, where the climate is cooler, in areas around both Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai. The Yao are expert embroiders and are renowned for beautiful clothing and textiles. They are also known to be impressive silversmiths and their handcrafted jewelry creations are highly regarded. Many of the designs from the Yao are ancient in origin and have been passed down generation by generation. Recently, many Yao silversmiths have started to create more mainstream jewelry designs which appeal to a larger market. This allows them to support their family and community while maintaining a link to the traditions and heritage of their unique culture.
We are excited to share their designs with the world and our partnership helps support their community while helping to preserve their traditional art. We are proud to showcase the beauty of Thailand through their work and we hope you love their jewelry as much as we do.
