Anastasia Buisman, the founder of Ashiana, wants women to use accessories to enhance their outfit and feel confident. Designed in London and hand crafted in India, Ashiana styles each have their own unique story. Jewellery designed by women for women.
Ashiana’s founder Anastasia, travels to India several times a year to personally source materials, suppliers and components that fit within their philosophy and fair trade practices.
Ashiana's focus on handmade gives local workers a chance to pass down century old traditions and practices and gives families a source of income that would be otherwise lost in today's world of automation and mass production. They use as many handmade practices as possible in their collections to give their clients a unique piece but also to promote and keep alive the work and lives of local artisans.
Ashiana believes and supports ethical and fair trade as well as female empowerment. Their workshop in India adheres to fair and ethical trading standards.
