Afghan traditional clothes and jewellery are originated from the Kuchis in Afghanistan.  Kochis or Kuchis (from the Persian word: کوچ koch; meaning “migration”) are Afghan Pashtun nomads, primarily from the Ghilji tribal confederacy.

They used to migrate or wander on borders between Afghanistan and Pakistan. In Pakistan they used to move towards Indus Valley and in the west they used to move towards Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

Some of the most distinguished Ghilji Kochi tribes include the Kharoti, Andar and Ahmadzai. Authentic Tribal jewellery takes not only a culturally idealized outward appearance, but also reflects a way of life that is steeped in socio-cultural tradition.

All vintage products are made from brass and hand cut glass stones that are unique to the region and an amalgamation of mixed metals. The product is sourced from different villages and districts in Afghanistan. 

There is no local source of gold and silver in Afghanistan so, the tribal women and artisans made this purely by their hand. They started with melting down old coins. 

Kuchi jewellery incorporates colourful glass jewels, coins, bells, dangles, beadwork, embroidery, mirrors, pom poms & bright fabrics, creating impressive headpieces, earrings, necklaces, chokers, cuffs, bracelets, rings, belts & anklets. 

You can also notice beautiful popular motifs of fish, hearts, flowers and natural elements that are considered bearers of goodwill. 

Every piece of vintage is curated by us with a lot of physical work for our suppliers and us. Every couple of months we sit down with them for lunch and sort beautiful pieces from pile of metal. 

Every piece is picked up with meticulous attention to their colors, condition and composition. 

Once we have picked the beautiful pieces they are cleaned and sanitized thoroughly before we start working on restoration for them.
Once thoroughly cleaned we pick out threading and stones that make a wonderful mix and match combination for our pieces turning them into modern heirlooms
