Zevar is proud to announce that an exclusive line of our jewellery has been selected by the British Museum to be retailed at the museum shop from January 2016.
This exciting chapter in our evolution underscores our core brand values- traditional Indian designs that are hand-made with silver and semi-precious stones.
Since our launch in June 2015, Zevar's products are available to buy from a number of leading online retailers such as Asos, Shopcade and Independent Boutique. Our British Museum collection represents our first foray into a physical retail space and we look forward to announcing more such partnerships that are in the pipeline.
Zevar’s founder and creative director – Shivani S. Mohinta is a Londoner and her brand is a tribute to her home country – India, along with it’s beautiful flora, fauna, forts and palaces. Shivani works closely with a select group of artisans based in remote Indian villages to create her pieces.
Zevar’s handcrafted silver jewellery adorned with semi-precious stones such as turquoise, carnelian, zirconia, marcasite and quartz- their collections so far showcases several traditional techniques of engraving, filigree and setting that are unique to Indian jewellery. The jewellery is inspired by the vibrant colours that are used in Indian folk art, colourful Indian textiles and prints, and hand painted tiles and pottery. Zevar promises to offer new, colourful and exquisite designs to the UK high street market.
