Silver and Gold have I none, but what I do have I give to you....

Skim with us across the oceans...to remote villages in the misty mountains of Asia. There are breathtaking views, but also harsh, merciless poverty. Meet the Hmong, an ethnic minority whose women are gifted, in spite of their poverty, with the skill of exquisite embroidery, handed down from mothers to daughters. Having neither silver nor gold nor precious stones, they beautify their stark lives by making their own jewelry. Using only needle and thread, they craft beautiful jewel-like patterns and designs on simple metal or fabric, using the colors of precious stones...these are their jasper and ruby and emerald and turquoise. Their skill is fast becoming a rare art, rendering their creations collectors' items.

Made with love.

Ekantha.com is privileged to bring these to you.

Our luxury collection of home decor made of the highest-quality fabrics, in beautiful jewel tones, many of them in matching sets, for your elegant, exquisite, home.

These beautiful intricately-sewn 11-inch dolls tell stories of Hmong children in China. The villages where they live are surrounded by mist-covered mountains during the day and touched by frost at night. As breathtaking as these views are for outsiders, life for them is harsh and merciless. Families are highly dependent on the vagaries of subsistence agriculture and most experience extreme poverty....read more

Our wearables are both stylish and practical. They are all made in limited quantities to high quality specifications and have that custom-made touch, with fine hand-embroidery adorning them.

Ekantha Gift Packages: A gift from your heart that is sure to delight your recipient. These are hand-curated by our experts.

Give a gift to someone you know, and give hope to village women at the same time.

Women who want to earn an honest income to help their families. And women who desperately need a sense of value.

All this begins when you pick a gift package of a value you choose. We will pick out a selection of our high-quality products, and mail it with the greatest care. In the notes section of your order, please let us know:

  1. To whom to ship the gift to, making sure to provide a complete and accurate address
  2. From whom the gift is
  3. A target date on which you'd like it to arrive and/ or occasion (Birthday, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Wedding, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Thank you, etc.)
  4. Preferences, if any (e.g., dolls, bags, jewelry, color (if available), etc.)

Check out, pay, and you're all done! (Prices include all taxes and shipping charges, so there are no surprises for you at check-out). You will receive an email acknowledgment, and another when the gift is shipped out. Your recipient will receive a complimentary gift insert with your name on it. (No special gift-wrap is used.)
