Culture:

The opportunity to be part of building both the VASHI brand and the VASHI culture from the ground up is an extraordinary one and with it comes great responsibility. The foundations of a unique business model are well established and there is nothing to stop us from creating something iconic both privately and publicly. Our product is fine jewellery but our world is art, design, fashion, culture, ethics, value. Skills and experience are important but even more so is a hunger to be part of the journey and to input into the collective whole. In building this culture, passion trumps talent and talent trumps experience - finding the right people with the right attitude, the right character and a desire to cut the BS, work hard, be nice and fight for each other will be the difference between success and failure.
