Empowerment and encouraging growth is a key part of our purpose. But it's more than just paying a fair wage: it's about truly caring for our talented team, developing long term relationships, and setting them up for success outside of our partnerships. This can mean paying up front for materials, providing on-time payments, and offering business development support.
Our small batch beaded jewelry is individually handmade by our team of seven indigenous Embera artisans who are compensated per item, not by hour. Meaning the more they make, the more they make.
For larger scale production, our designs are ethically produced by members of a vulnerable population in Medellin, primarily of female heads of home, who are provided safe, positive working conditions and compensated justly under a fair payment policy for labor.
Without them, there is no us. Your support makes an incredible impact.
