How It's Made
Many pieces are handmade by women in one of the cooperatives They work with in Delhi. This cooperative works with women in the surrounding villages of Delhi, making it possible for women to work from their own homes, if they choose. The earrings and necklaces don't require machinery to make, so the artisans pick up the supplies from the cooperative's workshop and bring them home to create these beautiful earrings. They bend the thick wire using a handheld tool, then weave the small glass beads around the wire or other beads or thread.
“We are on a mission to build a company that’s good for the world and the people who inhabit it. Creating space for women to feel safe, valued, and respected—no matter their geography. This mission has led us to working with 8,000+ change making women around the world: women who are on their own missions to improve the lives of their children and communities"
A little about India
India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It has a very diverse population that consists of thousands of ethnic groups and likely hundreds of languages. Fair Anita works with the team here to provide long term, reliable trade agreements that allow cooperatives to hire more women and make proactive business decisions.
