Our jewelry is handmade in Bali from 100% ethically recycled silver. The gold plating of our jewelry is also done by our Indonesian smiths, fairly and with love and care for the planet.
Our crafters receive a fair wage and work in a safe working environment and within regular working hours. Moreover, thanks to various programs, they can continue to develop and grow. There is a strong social safety net for all local employees and working harmoniously is a key focus point within the diverse and multicultural team.
LOCAL WELFARE PROGRAMS
In addition to our ethical ways of producing, there are a number of social programs to help the local population in Bali:
- Local women living near the workshop are being engaged in the beading process, waving process and other production related handicraft. This way they can earn more income to support their families.
- There is a training opportunity for 'amateur' smiths; they are regularly trained by expert smiths to become ethically oriented professionals, so that they can obtain a permanent position in the workshop and thus build a better life for themselves.
- Money is collected locally to make a donation each year to an orphanage or nursing house.
Last but not least, we guarantee that no children participate in the production process of our jewelry and we take into account the ceremonies that are so important in Bali. This way we not only respect human and labor rights, but also the local culture – an important condition for our successful and warm collaborations.
