So Just Shop ARTISANS

They work with women-led artisan groups across Asia, Africa and Latin America. Using traditional techniques weaved into contemporary designs; they support these women to produce a wide variety of products including jewellery, accessories and homeware.

“We weave to pay for our children’s educations or to feed our families. It’s work we love because we’re all together facing the same challenges and sharing the same successes… We don’t know all the places our weaves go in this world, but we know that people everywhere like them very much.”

Sunita, Senior Weaver for Women’s Weave, Madhya Pradesh, India

 

“I employ 5 artisans to make jewellery for Artisan and Adventurers providing secure income for my family and the families of the artisans I employ. Recently, I have been able to expand the production facility built at the back of my house and looking to train new staff.”
