A simple statement necklace, with a couple crescent shaped pendant -- this could very well be our new go-to necklace! Made fair trade by women in India from silver-plated recycled metals.
After developing partnerships with artisans in the Uttar Pradesh region, our suppliers began designing jewelry that combines local artisan traditions with modern jewelry trends. We are proud to be associated with the resilient and talented women of these three cooperatives and offer you the bold and meaningful collection that you see today.
This cooperative sets the standard for what fair trade should look like. They partner with artisans from all over the region, making every component of jewelry by hand, primarily from recycled materials. They provide health insurance and educational scholarships for the artisans, directly investing in women's rights and social mobility.
They ensure women artisans are able to get bank accounts, and they provide financial literacy trainings. They also work hard to help women break into the job market, providing community trainings on business and vocational skills to women of different experience levels.
