Kamile Necklace - Elk The Label
Make a bold statement with the Kamile Necklace, this chunky piece crafted from sustainable timber adds a subtle injection of colour into your wardrobe. Comprising 3 rows of beads strung together and suspended from a waxed cord, it looks beautiful layered over basic t-shirts or knitwear.
This piece is 100% handmade. Crafted from sustainable plantation timber it is grown, managed, harvested and replanted by the Go Green organisation under the guidance of the DNER. Each bead and piece is hand cut, shaped, dyed and then polished with a natural wax based product. The beads are strung on waxed cotton cord and the finished piece is extremely light. It is handmade in Cebu, Philippines by a family owned workshop called Earthworks who have collaborated with ELK since 2004.
