Takara – fair trade fashion accessories

TAKARA means “treasure” in Japanese — and treaures are what you’ll find in this colorful fair trade store.

Based in France, Takara has stores in France, Belgium, Ireland and the Netherlands. You’ll find the latter at Leidestraat 80 (corner of Prinsengracht), at the former location of Kazana (which just happens to mean “treasure” in Hindi).

Takara is committed to providing quality products made from natural materials and local art craft. The company works directly with each craftsman, without any intermediary parties.

The world is full of beautiful things.


Takara explores its treasures, and brings you some jewels made in natural materials : glass pearls, wood, bones, metal… Only handicraft and tradition are able to uncover all the beauties and uniqueness of Mother Nature.

We refuse to use plastic in our original products despite the fact that plastic is mass-produced and cheap.

Indian Saris, Moroccan scarves, Berber necklaces, Tibetan bracelets , silks from Laos, show the entire world.

The colors are as warm as the countries we passed through.
