Being founder lead means we can focus on what matters most to us. We have an extremely
conscious approach to everything that we do and helping to protect our planet
for future generations informs our decisions as a business.
We are committed to ensuring that our operations are both kind to the environment and respectful
to all our stakeholders – partners, suppliers, and customers alike.
We will keep you posted on our journey, but here are some of the steps we have already taken to becoming a responsible business.
Abby, our founder, has personally
handpicked and visited the small number of workshops we use and closely reviews the supply chain ethics. Our workshops are based in India and Indonesia where we have strong and mutually beneficial relationships.
We are dedicated to ensuring that every stage of the manufacturing
process is both kind to the environment and respectful to all the people involved, particularly the craftsmen and women who bring our designs to life. We only work with artisans who offer complete transparency and meet our high standards of quality and conduct.
Planting a Forest
We are working towards being carbon neutral. Science tells us that trees are one of the best ways to absorb carbon from the atmosphere which is why we have teamed up with Ecologi, and plant one tree for every order shipped. At the moment we have planted a wood but with your orders we are aiming to create a forest!
We are a zero single-use packaging brand, meaning all our packaging and printed material is recyclable, or made from recycled material derived from an FSC® forest.
Our beautiful pouches are designed to be reused and are perfect for storing your jewellery.
Our name Memara comes from a blend of the Punjabi word Kumara which means beautiful and memory which is the middle English word for keepsake. This encapsulates exactly what we want each piece to represent for our customers - a treasured keepsake.
Rather than following fashion trends we create pieces that we hope will feel timeless. Our collections are small which means we have very little waste.
Care and Repair
We want our jewellery to be adored forever and a little TLC never goes
amiss. Remember to give it a polish with a soft cloth and not to wear it in the shower or when swimming. It doesn’t like to be tugged around or covered in perfume. If anything happens to your jewellery, please get in touch as we can
offer a repair service.
