This tube bracelet is made with tiny glass beads  known as 'Pote', a style which is very popular in Nepali society and culture.  The bracelet is very flexible and is designed to gently roll over the hand and sit comfortably on the wrist. Please note that because these bracelets are handmade, sizes may vary from piece to piece.

Why we love it

  • Handcrafted by skilled artisans at a small fair trade business in Nepal
  • Designed and brought to the UK market by a small, female-led Brand based in Hastings
  • Simple, timeless, classic design - also looks great layered with other colours, mix-and-match style

    'Pote' is the common name for these tiny colourful glass beads that are very popular in Nepali society and culture. Colourful pote jewellery is a symbol of luck for the married women in Nepal especially in Hindu communities. The pote beads used in Aura Que's jewellery designs are bought locally in Kathmandu.

    Inner diameter differs from around 5cm to 6cm.

    Aura Que works closely with small producer groups in Nepal that are WFTO members to ensure healthy and safe work environments and payment of living wages. It also encourages trade for small Nepalese family businesses and charity handicraft units, aiming to slowly build long term relationships with these suppliers, under the same fair principles.

    Handmade by Nabila and Rajesh alonside skilled artisans through their fair trade family business in Nepal. Nabila has taken over the business since her Fathers’ retirement, and they have been working with many of their artisans for over 25 years. They work with many women in the Kathmandu valley who make the pieces around their family commitments at home. This gives the women flexibility in their working hours, usually working alongside other family members, friends and neighbours to coordinate small productions. Nabila and Rajesh coordinate the designs and orders, distribute the materials to the women, and then collect the final pieces.
