Rituu honors Buddhist meditation practices with the design of this Shambhala-style bracelet. Meaning 'bliss' in Sanskrit, the Shambhala-style bracelet symbolizes tranquility, peace and happiness â the oneness of all. Rituu expertly knots the cotton bracelet by hand with macramÃ© techniques and crowns it with carnelian, believed to energize, and charoite, stone of transformation.
A jewelry pouch inspired by the unique culture of India is included with this bracelet.
Each product comes with a special NOVICA booklet that helps to bring artisans and patrons closer together with a small bit of information about the creator of each piece and the inspiration behind the item.

We CONNECT artisans to a global marketplace of socially conscious customers:
Artisans from around the world (many living in rural communities) don't have the means to sell their work on the international market. NOVICA gives them a free platform to do this, and reach customers on a global scale. Our teams of local art experts based in every region, provide artisans with all the backup they need.Â Rituu Agarwal (pictured above), the artisan behind this and many other special pieces, works with the NOVICA regional office in India."br""br""u"We EMPOWER artisans to build a sustainable business from their craft:"br" We operate a completely transparent system where artisans have all the control. They are free to raise or lower their own prices, can withdraw their products at any time, and can even put their items on sale.Â "br""br""u"We PRESERVE ancient artistic traditions for future generations to enjoy:"br" Local sourcing teams in every region are tasked with finding the most unique and precious art traditions around. We look for originality, quality of workmanship, and pieces we know our customers will love. In the past, artists have been forced to give up their art in favor of a more lucrative career. NOVICA allows them to carry on with their craft, as there is now a platform from which they can operate a sustainable creative business.
