A Secret Gift

Naga Cuff

Did you know that each of our pieces has a unique backgrill work? This John Hardy signature is a secret gift from the Balinese artisans telling us the story of that particular piece. The handcrafted backgrill is a hidden work of art to reflect the beauty that lies within each of us, making it personally special for the collector.

2012 Earth Day Activities

2012 Earth Day Activities

In the month of April, all the John Hardy offices celebrated Earth Day to show our dedication in being Greener Every Day!

New York
The New York office donated 4,272 trees to the Arbor Day Foundation to be planted across the US, with a focus on the areas affected by recent wildfires.

Hong Kong
The Hong Kong office held a clothing drive in order to donate old clothes to Caritas, a charitable organization in Hong Kong. A total of 150 items were brought in!

Notices were placed around the office in Bangkok as a friendly reminder to be green in every single way.

The Bali staff gave a presentation called “Keeping Clean from Plastic Waste” to a local Elementary school and created a pledge board where everyone could post how they promise to be green. The team also had the awesome opportunity to plant Bamboo with the Balinese governor!
