  • Very classy, very original, 100% Vavavida. This beautiful well made cuff is a combination of senses. Leather is inset in the cuff for a prefect sensory and visual appeal of both leather and metal fused into a single object.
    Made by a group of artisans in India, those women strive to achieve a better life for themselves. That's why the fair trade label is so important for their livelihood. That's why we love to work with them.
    Remember, when you purchase through Vavavida -with the help of Project Concern International- part of the retail price functions as a donation on your behalf to help empower women accross the world.
  • What began as a small artisan group working from tiny, congested work spaces in Old Delhi, the Metal Jewelry Group is now a large community of over 100 artisans focusing on education and improvements in health and environmental impacts.Thanks to the application of fair trade standards the artisans have had an increase in wages and community growth and has allowed them to fulfill their basic requirements for a decent living.

    Due to the sustainable growth of this community, the group has begun keeping their children to schools much longer. The group is very proud that the average literacy of the group has increased significantly. These actions clearly represent a cultural shift in attitude including the female role in a traditional community. The support of female education and the female artisan working openly in this community is fostering an educated and open society.
  • Just use cloth and water to clean up your cuff but it's up to you and a matter of style preference. If you do not decide to regularly clean it, the metal will gain a beautiful patina that will make your Phula Cuff get a vintage look.
