Kantha Bead Bauble Bracelet

Colorful fabric beads are made from recycled Kantha textiles, then interspersed with metallic gold beads. They look great worn singly, or stacked and layered with our other Kantha bracelet styles.

  • Measures 0.75 inches wide; stretches to fit most wrists.
  • Each piece is made from recycled Kantha textiles, so colors and patterns are all one-of-a-kind and will vary; order in multiples for a vibrant display.
  • Sustainably handmade by women artisans in India.

The Story Behind the Art:

There are over 700 incredible women artisans in India and Bali that bring these jewelry designs to life, finding a path out of poverty through fair trade. They transform the scraps from Kantha quilts, which are made from worn cotton sari and are a traditional textile found in abundance in India, into beads for jewelry. This provides new life to a textile that is often discarded.

Each Kantha bead has a base made of wood, carved out of scraps gathered from a local furniture factory. We, and the artisans, love sustainable sourcing! Artisans then hand cover each wooden bead with a colorful piece of Kantha fabric, attaching them securely with a safe adhesive. Excess fabric is trimmed off, and the bead is complete. They are then strung together until they are transformed into one-of-a-kind necklaces, earrings or bracelets. The beads are assorted so the final piece of jewelry has a unique array of colors and patterns.
