We first came across Faire Collection in the instagram world and we're so excited to introduce you to them today. We love their design, mission statement, and environmental awareness. Faire Collection works with hundreds of artisans around the world, creating contemporary pieces while respecting traditional techniques. This short video introduces you to one of the communities Faire works with in Ecuador. We were surprised to discover that the string used to assemble the jewelry comes from a plant! This is taking eco to a whole new level.
Faire Collection is a leading fair trade accessories brand. Designed in New York City, and brought to life by the hands of fair trade artisan partners in Ecuador and Vietnam, Faire Collection is a fresh interpretation of artisanal craftsmanship. As a social enterprise, Faire Collection is deeply committed to elevating the lives of its artisan partners by providing dignified wages and holistic social programs that provide a path out of poverty. It has seen its first artisan partners’ income increase 12-fold since the company started, and has helped these artisans move from living in dire poverty to being participating members of the middle class.
As a social enterprise, Faire inspires further positive change through social programs, such as educational scholarships and no-interest loans. As a fashion brand, Faire Collection has changed the landscape of what to expect from fair trade products. Check out our offering of Faire Collection goodies.
