“Bast” Journal

The “Jacquard” Tablet Cover, “Broccato” Clutch, “Brocade” Bag, “Draw Loom” Journal and “Bast” Journal in our Moral Fibre Collection are made by a group of underprivileged women artisans in India who have and continue to face many hardships in their lives. Faced with physical disability, the caste system, abusive family members and poverty, these women looked to their inner strength and dedication to try to gain more independence and lift their families out of these hardships, giving them a reason to smile.

“Gladiator” cuffs

“Gladiator” cuffs

The silver and dull-gold finish “Gladiator” cuffs in our Moral Fiber Collection are made by an artisan named Mohammad Meeraj and his group of artisans in India. Mohammad Meeraj is based in a region that has a rich history of metal crafts and trade. However the trade has long been plagued with injustice: artisans are paid low wages, forced to pay commissions to exporters, and must self-finance raw materials needed to complete orders. Mohammad Meeraj used to work in different workshops before owning his own. Mohammed is an active supporter and promoter of fair trade practices and wants to make his workshop a model for fair trade metal handicraft products in India.
