FOLKDAYS presents SEVAR Studios by Hila & Wana Limar. After launching their jewellery label SEVAR Studios with a mini-collection in December 2020, the sisters Hila and Wana Limar introduce their new collection one year later. The second SEVAR Studios collection consists of eight pieces of jewellery that, through their names and design, pay special tribute to Afghanistan’s eventful history and its influential personalities.

These are the "Soraya" earrings in the big size. The hoops have an organic finish and are decorated with subtle and larger lapis lazuli stripes. They are available in three different sizes and can be elegantly combined with the "Rabia" bangle.

Hila and Wana Limar explain the inspiration behind the name: "Queen Soraya Tarzi is considered one of the most influential royal figures in Afghanistan. She played an important role in the modernisation reforms of her husband King Amanullah Khan (1919 to 1929) and was especially vocal about women's rights and girls' access to education. Thus, she opened the first school for girls and founded Ershad-I-Niswan, the first magazine for women."

The collection’s designs were created by Hila Limar (architect & chairwoman of the board at the non-profit organisation Visions for Children e.V.) and Wana Limar (creative producer, presenter, Visions for Children e.V. ambassador and member of their PR team). The earrings were then handcrafted in the workshop of a goldsmith in Afghanistan's capital Kabul. Read more about the collaboration here.

With their jewellery label SEVAR Studios, the sisters Hila and Wana Limar, who were born in Afghanistan, also combine their shared affinity for artistic design with their educational, sustainable aspirations – and therefore connect their longstanding commitment to the educational sector, especially through the non-profit organisation Vision for Children e.V., with their love of art and aesthetics. Profits generated by SEVAR Studios will be invested in a goldsmith training programme for girls and young women in Kabul, which Visions for Children e.V. is planning for 2022.

Please note that each pair is handmade from natural materials. No earring is like the other, but a beautiful one of a kind. Therefore, variations to the photos may occur.
