Over many years, Maiwa has travelled the world researching textile processes and the cultures that support them. During this time we have also encountered two areas with a long history of unsurpassed skill in working precious metals. Morocco and India.
Maiwa seeks out traditional items, such as amulets, broaches, turquoise, lapis and amber. In north Africa pieces are often of Tuareg or Berber origin. When working in India we employ local silversmiths to set stones and traditional pieces in 92.5% silver settings.
We are happy to say that in India, our enthusiasm for traditional pieces has ignited renewed interest in traditional work. Often the combination of antique elements in new settings provides the perfect contrast to fire the imagination. These are pieces with a history and a story, adornment that whispers in its own voice.
