Italy to India - How is Tanzire Blurring Boundaries Through Jewelry?
To be able to whiff off a country’s fashion, cultural, lifestyle aesthetics without having to be physically present in that place is pretty magical. One of the core foundations for Tanzire’s conception, hence, was to let women from around the world experience this magic through jewelry. The thought led to execution and here we are - housing contemporary handmade jewelry from 13 women artisans from 10 different countries.
Each piece of jewelry speaks a different language, fine-tuned by artisan’s individual vision, experiences, inspirations, which is further wrapped in its country’s traditional or contemporary or a mix of both aesthetics. Handmade jewelry from a different country makes us - Tanzire and Tanzire Women feel like a part of that country. It brings a sense of belongingness and attachment along with it. Let’s take a closer look at our collaborations with handmade designers from different countries and learn more about what have they brought into the world of Tanzire. Every piece manifests the creation of a new world for today’s women: brave, genuine and sophisticated.
The vacay-favorite, casual-looking Western European country - Spain actually champions a very crisp and tip-top sense of style. And, thanks to Maramz by Marian Zaragoza from Madrid and PD Paola by Paola Sasplugas from Barcelona for introducing us to that unpopular opinion of the country. When it comes to fashion, Spanish people are always-well-dressed, always-classy, and always-crisp. It’s the #1 trend that the country follows. And both the artisans inculcate these core fashion aesthetics of the country into their design. Celebrate Spain with the elegant, feminine, and contemporary pieces of jewelry available on our website.
Fashion in this Eastern Europe country finds a balance between traditions and contemporary sense of style. It’s subtle yet carrying the sensuality and boldness of the Greeks.

We’d be lying if we didn’t agree that Molina teleports us to the refreshing, relaxing side by the beach just with its visual aesthetics.

Just like India’s diverse cultures, our 4 brands from India bring myriad sides of the country to Tanzire. On one hand, Jinal Chowksi’s My Meera Store from Ahmedabad and Garima Singh’s Iha from Delhi add the ancient and traditional touch of India with their stones, beads, and thread & rope jewelry. On the other hand, Sonika’s Neti Neti from Delhi and Aarushi’s Studio Kassa from Jaipur add the contemporary, modern, and forward-moving side of India. Both their jewelry is extremely unique and takes inspiration from nature. While Neti Neti uses broken barks and wasted wood, Kassa exhibits India’s detail-to-craftsmanship through its fine use of textures and ancient techniques.
Collaborating with designers from countries that are relatively less popular has been something we look forward to most. Our collaboration with Maria Echeverri, from Central America’s Honduras, is one such amazing experience. To know and understand the art and craft of Honduras through her jewelry is just magnificent. Each of her pieces represents Honduras's undiscovered under-water beauty and brings them alive via beautiful textures and coral-like shapes. As it unravels the unknown about the country she also infuses fluidity of the aquatic life into her collection.
Even though Vietnam is seeing rapid modernization, what’s inspiring is that every Vietnamese ensures to move forward while keeping their old values and traditions intact.
