Ethical fashion starts with fair pay, but for us it doesn’t end there. The 5-year program we implemented for the female artisans in Uganda who created this piece of jewelry provided holistic care, including financial education, business mentoring, counseling, health training, and more.

There’s no reason to choose between “ethically made” and “beautiful and high quality.” Our designers worked hand-in-hand with the artisans who hand-roll each paper bead in this piece. The paper beads are then sealed with a water-based coating for lasting durability.
