French designer Ambre Babzoe founded her namesake jewelry label in 2000. Based in Bali, Ambre is highly influenced by the wide range of cultures she grew up with. Spending most of her life traveling, she came across jewelry design while saving for a trip to visit South African tribes. Starting a jewelry line to fund the trip, her focus was diverted when it grew to success. Combining contemporary details with primitive influences, the brand has now expanded into ready-to-wear, bags and shoes, all handmade in Bali and printed using carved wooden stamps.
