Jewelled Buddha partners exclusively with social enterprises, NGO’s and sustainable designers and brands. They curate a sophisticated edit of handcrafted, sustainable lifestyle fashion for style conscious women seeking to elevate their style with ethically made clothing.
Style Made To Empower – Jewelled Buddha places the artisan and the consumer at the heart of their business by empowering the artisan with a sustainable income and the customer with ethically made, traditionally crafted, wardrobe staples.
They work exclusively with innovative social businesses who have a strong sense of integrity and transparency in their practices, women’s empowerment programmes and environmental impact.
Ethics & Sustainability:
Jewelled Buddha talk to artisans to ensure they are working of their own free will, have been positively impacted by the wage they receive and if they have access to health care and education for their children. They ensure they work in a safe environment and have regular flexible working hours and holidays and ensure no children are employed under the age of 16. Jewelled Buddha actively look for social enterprises who specifically take an active and engaging role in women empowerment issues, gender equality and social equality and they do not work with large factories or organisations where it would be difficult to monitor the treatment of its workers.
Sourcing & Supplier Transparency:
Jewelled Buddha is committed to personally visiting all the suppliers they work with, at least once a year to ensure artisans are treated with dignity and respect. All products are either upcycled, zero waste, handloomed, use natural dyes or vegan and organic. By only selling handcrafted products, there is minimal industrial impact on the environment, less waste and age-old craft cultures and communities thrive.
Jewelled Buddha believe we all have the power to influence social change. For them that means supporting fashion that has been created consciously. Women make up the majority of the workforce in the textile industries of developing nations, facing huge challenges such as gender, caste and social inequality.
Jewelled Buddha only work with innovative social businesses who have a strong sense of integrity and transparency in their fair trade practices, women’s empowerment programmes and environmental impact. Each and every product they carry is handmade by artisans empowered by a fair and sustainable income.
Jewelled Buddha are passionate about age-old craft techniques around the world and therefore seek to promote the artisans and their cultures. Their products combine sustainable, responsibly sourced materials including recycled fabric. This has less impact on people and the planet.
