    New Women for Conservation range launched

    Wednesday, 30 May 2012  |  Colin

    Spiral Bead Bracelet - GreenWomen for Conservation are the latest addition to our roster of suppliers.

    When we first met Elizabeth, their owner, we were very impressed by the fair trade and eco mission she was undertaking with her company.

    Women for Conservation seeks to alleviate poverty in rural areas of Colombia through promoting conservation and fair trade.

    They provide opportunities to local artisans, in particular women who live in extreme poverty, by training them to make environmentally friendly hand-made accessories such as jewellery made with exotic seeds.

    Accessory Fair now stocks a range of beautiful Women for Conservation fair trade jewellery, including beaded bracelets and necklaces made using exotic seeds, such as Tagua, Chocho Rojo and Azaid.

    Not only are Women for Conservation’s handmade bracelets and necklaces stylish and great quality, but they all come with impressive fair trade and eco credentials. Also, on the label of every item you will find the name of the artisan who made it, you can then read their personal story on the artisan page on the Women for Conservation website.
