As a social enterprise, Faire Collection is deeply committed to elevating the lives of our artisans. We provide fair wages, hardship grants, and robust employee benefits that provide a path out of poverty. Additionally, 1% of sales is given directly to the artisans as an impact fund.
Faire Collection works with luxurious, natural materials that originate in the artisan communities we partner with. In Vietnam, we work with up-cycled horn, brass and wood and in Ecuador, we work with sustainably harvested seeds and responsibly sourced wood.
The majority of our artisan partners are women and we work closely with them to empower them through education and opportunity. In our fair trade workshops, most of the women are the main caregivers in their families, and they are now becoming the main breadwinners.
“Making jewelry helps me to de-stress and when I concentrate on making a necklace, I can relax because I know my family will have the money we need each month. ”
