The original inspiration for Faire Collection came from Ecuador, an incredibly biodiverse country, with enormous rainforests and home to many little-known seeds and nuts, which form the basis of our Ecuador jewelry collection. In Vietnam, we work with up-cycled horn, brass and wood, which are all handcrafted in our fair trade workshops. We work together with our artisans to find the very best quality materials for our collections, all of which are sourced with care. It is incredibly important to us to ensure our work is sustainable and environmentally sound.
Harvesting the seeds of the rainforest is part of a natural, sustainable cycle. By working with communities and building a profitable alternative to logging or farming in the rainforset, we can help protect traditional ways of life, as well as the environments which our artisans have lived in for generations.
Tagua is a beautiful, smooth seed found in pods which emerge from the trunk of the Ecuadorian Ivory Palm. When ripe, the pods are either harvested from the trees or fall to the ground where they can be collected from the forest floor. The nuts are then dried naturally in the sun for several months. Once the dark shell is removed, a beautiful, hard ivory-like seed emerges, ready for our artisans to carve.
Coconuts have been used to make jewelry for generations in the rainforests and coastal areas of South America. The shell is lightweight and soft, and its natural properties add beautiful, warm tones of light and dark brown to our jewelry.
The Pambil seed is found on a tall South American palm which reaches heights of 70 feet and forms part of the canopy of the rainforest. The wood is often used to build houses and the leaves make great thatched roofs. The fruit of this tree contains a small seed which we use in our jewelry collections.
Açaí palm tree palms are found in the swamps and floodplains of the South American rainforest and are best known for the fruit they produce. These small purple berries are harvested by hand, high above the ground by traditional forest farmers. Inside the fruit is a seed and once dried and polished, the seeds of the açaí berries, create some of the most exquisite, natural beads.
Each brass element can take up to a day to perfect, with every part of the cutting and polishing process being done by hand. By combining brass with natural elements such tagua or horn, our artisan designers create a contrasting elegance, resulting in a beautifully modern interpretation of a traditional artisan craft.
Wood offers a striking yet natural contrast to other materials in our collection. Ecuador and Vietnam are well known for their exceptional wood carving and our artisans use both traditional carving methods and modern laser cutting techniques, respecting traditions and adding a modern-day interpretation. Through its alluring pallet of colors, wood brings a natural richness to our jewelry.
We use up-cycled bull horn to create incredibly textural designs to sit beautifully with our handmade brass. By applying heat and water, our artisans are able to cut and mold the up-cycled bullhorn. The horn is repurposed from the food industry and would otherwise go to waste. With its natural color variations offering combinations from white to black, and warm caramel to soft gray, we specialize in creating distinctive matte and sophisticated polished up-cycled pieces.
Traditionally both the bull horn in Vietnam and tagua in Ecuador are cut using craft saws and handheld carving tools. Laser cutting techniques have increased the intricacies of our work, allowing us to create stunningly detailed shapes and more complex designs. It also offers a greater degree of standardisation and a higher level of precision, giving us the freedom to enhance our collection in an innovative way.
