We settled for the name Kora Kora for our brand since the term "Kora" encompasses numerous cultures, with roots in Greece, West Africa, and the Indian Subcontinent. Kora refers to a musical instrument in West Africa, but it takes on a whole other connotation in Greek mythology as "maiden" as it travels north.
It is referred to as a "circular voyage" as the word travels east, tucked away in the shadows of the Himalayas and Bhutan. Kora has a musical, mystical, and spiritual essence that represents components of a meaningful and purposeful journey. The idea was conceived to handcraft authentic jewelry intended to change and leave an impact on the way you view this beautiful journey we call life.
