takara jewelry

New to the New York store is a beautiful new jewelry collection.

Takara is inspired by traditional craft techniques and meditative working processes. Each piece is handmade in a small workshop in Portland, OR. This collection combines the traditional Japanese braiding technique, kumihimo, with natural dye processes and hand- hammered metals. Amulets are bound by intricate silk cord, elemental shapes hang from gold wire. Logwood, alkanet, cutch, kamala and sandalwood lend rich color to the fiber, articulating a vital connection to the natural world.

The artist behind Takara is Jen Goff, a West Coast native currently residing in Portland, OR. Her travels have led her all across the world, where she has worked on farms and gardens, shot rolls of film, bypassed fancy education, studied medicinal herbs, walked hundreds of miles, sat silent in meditation and finally settled down to make jewelry. Jen’s working process is intuitive and expresses a desire to connect beauty with everyday life through objects of personal adornment.

Ryan Roche

Ryan Roche's beautiful cashmere knits just arrived. We are so excited to have her collection in all of our stores this winter.  

"Renowned for the attention to sustainable detail with which she sources fabrics, dies and yarns. Ryan brings that same conscientiousness to her women’s collection, which features exquisite cashmere knits made by a women’s co-operative in Nepal.
Ryan Roche works with a distinctive palette of subtle, becoming colors; her designs make modern lines extraordinary with a deft, poetic touch. * Ryan Roche lives in an old stone house in upstate New York, with her husband, three children and a farmyard of animals."
