Hands up if you’re one who cannot resist adding a new piece or two to your accessory collections on a monthly, or — ahem — weekly basis. There’s nothing wrong with indulging in a little fashion treat now and then, but we are here to tell you that you can actually do good while spending that money.
With the advent of online shopping, one can purchase pretty much anything from the most far-flung of locations in the world and have it delivered to your doorstep without much trouble.
But the even greater thing about this enhanced connectivity in trading is that it opens up a channel for women in need to reach out to the world for support and solidarity.
Here, we have collated nine meaningful pieces of hand-crafted jewellery that you can buy from charitable businesses that are founded to empower women in need by providing them with work opportunities.
Whether they be living in Rwanda, Nepal, India or Laos, these women will benefit in multiple ways with the money you put towards their craftwork. So why not invest in their future by purchasing some of these? They look so gorgeous, we don’t think you’ll need much convincing.
And while you’re at it, make sure you thoroughly explore these websites — some of them also carry outstanding hand-crafted bags and home accessories.
