Shaku is a newly launched luxury accessories brand based in London. The London-based brand is synonymous with time-honoured techniques, tradition and modernity, and is in line with slow fashion. Sophisticated designs have multi-generational appeal and are heirlooms to be passed down, not discarded within a season. Immune to fleeting, passing trends, they are intended to be loved and worn for decades to come.
