ABOUT SUNDARA MAR
Sundara Mar's motive is to rethink the materials, supply chain, and the design behind how traditional jewelry is made. Our pieces are made with high-grade Italian acetate that is renewable, non-toxic, and biodegradable. All jewelry and accessories are crafted with high quality alternative materials like cellulose acetate and more.
Starting July 2021, Sundara Mar will donate funds to One Tree Planted to plant one tree for each order that is placed on its official website - from now until forever.
One Tree Planted is an environmental non-profit 501(c)3 tree-planting organization that plants trees in countries all over the globe.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Contemporary jewelry label Sundara Mar launched April 2018, created by Houston-based jewelry designer Vanessa Martinez. From designing jewelry for former sister label Marva Atelier back in 2015, Vanessa has since channelled a more contemporary and eco-driven approach to slow fashion to eventually become the conscious jewelry and accessories brand Sundara Mar.
Vanessa has worked with brands like sustainable fashion label Reformation, Lou & Grey, Local Eclectic; and has had Sundara Mar featured internationally in various issues and editorials from Vogue, Rollacoaster, LadyGunn, Parents Latina, and more.
Having graduated from the University of Houston with two degrees in Marketing and Entrepreneurship, she thrives in the 'sweet spot' between entrepreneurship and designing collections. Vanessa Martinez designs and operates from her hometown in Houston, Texas with her small team.
