With love, with enthusiasm, with dreams, with strength, with passion.
Travelling. That was the word that led us to create San Saru.
We have always been fascinated by travelling. We found each other, and we started the adventure. And not just a travelling adventure - the San Saru adventure as well.
We went to Morocco, and it was there where we fell in love with discovering other cultures..
We traveled to Thailand and it was there that we learned about the power of the human being, the power of a smile under any circumstances. Over there, nothing resembles the reality that we live at home, but the people smile and it seems the richest country in the world, because of the happiness that people spread.
It was in Cambodia where we found the inspiration - how they managed to make beautiful things out of recycled things. Our routine took up our time so a year went by before we travelled to India.
In India we discovered a world of colors: a wealthy, yet poor land at the same time, a land of contrasts, of social classes and marginalisation, where the color of your shoes is the least of your worries, where poverty overcomes happiness, where poverty shrinks your heart, and where seeing a smile is harder that seeing the sun.
A land full of life and death at the same time. Two Indias in one, where you have to look beyond to find its essence, its beauty, its wealth and its character. We were, are, and will be in love with India,, no matter what they say or what can be seen – this country sticks with you forever.
In Sri Lanka we fell in love with its tranquillity, its life, its people, its hospitality and its simplicity. We learned to appreciate the moments that give you years of life.
After discovering these countries we decided to turn our lives around,we left everything behind and embarked on fulfilling our dream. We started building San Saru full of energy and motivation. Jewellery has always been our passion, so we decided to put all our inspiration into it.
From the beginning it was clear to us that we wanted to offer a different product, a product with soul.
Our philosophy, to create San Saru from a different perspective. To share our success with those around us, to offer everything we can to help. To offer products that feel close and with a background, no dark productions. To give a personalised and close service to our customers. Doing everything with love and respecting our environment. To be transparent, humble and human. We have to give in order to receive.
And here we are after eight years, with our essence that makes us different, close, but growing, without stopping to grow. Today we are a great team of souls that give life to San Saru, and we could not be prouder of it.
We are in love with San Saru!
Thank you, universe, for giving us so much.

You just have wish for it and concentrate all your energy on your dream, put your will and enthusiasm into it and you will get what you set out to do.
