Jewelry Collection 

 MANAVA, Cambodia

2020 

"Translated from Sanskrit, MANAVA means humankind. MANAVA believes in love, people and culture being at the heart of all our designs. We are here to support female artisans by creating exclusive, artisanal rattan products that strengthen the international reputation of Cambodia's creative industries. Bringing people together to preserve an important part of Cambodia's cultural legacy, while also providing education and empowerment training to Cambodian women. MANAVA provides the artisans with a sustainable income, empowers their creativity and offers them a safe working environment, where their views and opinions matter."

From December 2019 to February 2020 I was a volunteer at MANAVA.

Together with the weavers I developed a jewelry collection of the natural materials which are already used in the current collection of baskets and bags. The new series of fashion accessories will ensure weavers to produce these small products faster, and therefore earn more money in a shorter period of time.
