Annah Chakola’s family has been in the Indian textile business for over a century and a half, so to say working with fabric is in her blood wouldn’t be that far of a reach. After years of witnessing beautiful fabrics ends and threads going to waste, Annah decided to turn one man’s trash into another woman’s treasure. Each piece that Annah designs for Boho Gypsy’s recycled fabric collection is carefully handcrafted by a registered Global Fair Trade women’s collective in Northern India. She’s forged relationships with many similar initiatives around the globe to help bring her designs to fruition. Supporting other mom and pop shops — no matter where they are — is important to this conscientious entrepreneur.
FRANCIS BUG BROOCH
These exclusive-to-BRIKA brooches are designed by Boho Gypsy and crafted by artisans who have done traditional beading on Indian saris and traditional garb for generations.
These brooches are inspired by Annah’s love of vintage & her own collection of brooches. Though mildly scared of critters she loves taking the opportunity to create works of art based on things that are seemingly harmless yet scary to so many people.
Materials: Silk thread, resin beads & cotton backing. Handcrafted in India.
