Story Behind the Art:
Sitara Collections was born from founder Linda Singh's passion for artisan-created goods, and a determination to offer thoughtfully made items rather than mass-produced pieces. With workshops in Delhi, and Jaipur, Sitara Collections employs approximately 25 makers creating a range of jewelry as well as leather pieces. The women who make the jewelry have all been able to learn new skills, while the men who make the leather pieces utilize techniques that have been passed down generations. Linda is proud that the stones used in their jewelry is all ethically sourced, and that their leather is colored using vegetable dyes. An even larger source of pride is that by working with Sitara Collections, the makers Linda employs work in clean, safe environments, and are paid a fair wage that makes it possible to support themselves and their families. Being based in India, it was important for Linda to give back. So Sitara Collections started the Shiksha Vikas Vidyalaya School in the small village of Chanchali. The school provides after-school programs designed to supplement and enrich students' education in the areas of mathematics and English in order to give them a head start and help them forge a new path for their lives.
