Accessories can be used to send a message about your style, but so much more meaning can be derived from even the simplest of pieces. When you choose handmade, you’re making a statement not only about your own values, but you’re supporting the statement of the maker as well.
A real person created every style in our shop, and every purchase supports their livelihood. In fact, your purchase often supports an entire network beyond just the person who created it. Every purchase creates a ripple effect throughout the towns and communities of our artisans. When you choose Fair Trade, you know exactly where your money is going. You play an active role in their story and have a direct connection with that individual.
Handmade means that no two pieces are exactly alike. The unique qualities of natural materials and the small variations in handcraftsmanship create a piece that you will treasure for years to come. Their love of crafting these styles often spans back generations, with families specializing in an art that is passed down. When these pieces are created in small quantities, a great attention to detail is placed on the final product. We monitor the creation process closely from start to finish, but so do the artisans that craft your goods, so you know exactly what you are getting.
Your looks can send a message about the type of world you wish to see. Handmade styles are a way of voting with your dollars to ensure the ethical treatment of workers, but are also a way to vote for the use of eco-friendly materials. Our pieces are never crafted with lead, nickel, or other materials that can be harmful to you or the earth. Many products in our collection use upcycled materials that would have otherwise been discarded, giving new life to materials in a creative way.
