Chic, Tribal Kuchi JewelryJuly 12 2016
Kuchi jewelry brings us a piece of traditional nomadic culture from the borders of Afghanistan and Pakistan with its rough and antique appearance.
The Pashtoon tribe, one of the largest ethnic groups in Afghanistan, have worn Kuchi jewelry as a way to embody the constant motion of the tribe itself; moving down the mountains for the winter, and back up the mountains for the summer. The word “Kuchi” is a Persian word which, when translated, means “migration,” and is viewed by the Pashtoon culutre as a state of being rather than a temporary necessity.
Though there is no true written history of the tribe within the borders of their land, Kuchi jewelry stands as a statement of the Pashtoon culture and lifestyle, and brings a unique vairety to jewelry as a genre. Come into Nomad and take a look at our Kuchi rings, pendants, earrings, and necklaces, and surround your self with movement and beauty, too!Older posts
