Responsibly and fairly produced statement jewellery from Austria
With our MASCHALINA jewellery, we want to offer you a selection of unique, luxurious pieces of jewellery that are responsibly produced in regional workshops. It is important to us that your favourite pieces of jewellery are fairly produced, handmade and not and only look of high quality, but also are of high quality.
FAIR, REGIONALLY AND INCLUSIVELY PRODUCED JEWELLERY
From the very beginning, it was important to us to have our jewellery produced regionally and fairly, in contrast to large jewellery companies. That is why we have been cooperating with various social workshops in Austria since the beginning. This enables us not only to maintain personal and warm-hearted contact with our seamstresses and the production sites, but also to support social groups that have a hard time on the job market. At the moment we are working together with four social workshops in Vienna, who carfeully craft our jewellery for us. Fair wages, regional production and inclusion of minorities in the job market correspond with our ideas of responsible production.
WHAT DOES SUSTAINABILITY MEAN?
Slow Fashion instead of Fast Fashion!

Semi-precious stones such as agate, rose quartz, amethyst, etc., freshwater pearls, genuine silver 925 and Swarovski pearls are processed into earrings or bracelets using a special sewing technique Sustainability can mean many things.

Empowering women* is extremely important to us! Through charity events we support organisations that fight violence against women and offer protection to victims. In addition, MASCHALINA was founded by designer Masha Lina Borodin, who is passionate about bringing more women into leadership positions. The entire team consists of very special personalities who all identify as women. With the MASCHALINA statement jewellery, we want to emphasise the uniqueness of every individual woman!
Acting responsibly does not stop
MASCHALINA jewellery is handmade in Austria under ethical conditions. Acting responsibly means a lot to us. However, we are aware that there are many more areas where we can be more sustainable, environmentally friendly and responsible. We are not perfect, but we are working on making more and more areas of our jewellery label more responsible. So if you have any ideas, feel free to send them to us through our contact form.
