OUR ORIGINS

We welcome you to shara, a New Zealand based family company that was set-up by husband (Jaynend) and wife (Shubha) and is further supported by our son, Harshae and daughter, Sanam. 

Jaynend has a background in  jewellery manufacturing, designer clothing and retail, while Shubha has consulted to businesses on strategy, IT projects and customer service improvements. 

Our love and taste for things crafted simply and beautifully is what led to shara.

The family photos we're sharing below are from an amazing time we had at a 2018 destination, family wedding in Jaipur.

Inspired by our travels to India, we now work with small artisan groups there and look forward to sharing the story of your individual  chosen piece with you, as part of your discerning purchase.
