When we met Roshini Aluwihare, founder of Codis Maya, we met someone as passionate about preserving her craft as we are about preserving ours. We instantly knew we wanted to work with her on an exclusive Cobbler Union collection.
Founded in 1987, Codis Maya is best known for their expertise in vitreous enamelling - an extremely rare and fading art. To put the level of effort and quality in perspective, each pair of cufflinks they make passes through 14 different workshops (all in the UK) and the hands of around 30 people. The results are beautiful bespoke cufflinks and lapel pins you will cherish for years to come.
CONSTRUCTION: Sterling silver cufflinks with white rhodium plate and vitreous enamel.
PRODUCT SPECS: Opaque navy enamel. 15mm diameter.
INSPIRATION: Inspired by British artist- textile designer, poet and social activist William Morris. Recognized as a significant figure of British culture during the Victorian era, Morris became a highly sought after interior designer chiefly creating iconic prints on tapestries, wallpaper and fabric that are still iconic today. Morris’s prints are chiefly designed around flora and fauna, often expressed in lush and abundant styles yet with subtly of stylized forms and tonal color.
DESIGN: They have an intricate pattern incorporating delicate leaves and fruit of the plant which are symbols of plentiful harvests and bountiful times. Grapes, and their vines are also sacred to Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, making them a great gift for a loved one or for a celebration of love.
PRE-ORDERS: Please allow twelve weeks for any cufflink or lapel pin currently out of stock and available for pre-order.
