Why Fair Trade Bead Bracelets?
Darin is a talented Thai jewelry designer who, through Fair Trade, has organized a jewelry co-op in Fang. Wiang Fang is in the northern Chiang Mai Province in Thailand, where job options are extremely limited.
Fair Trade has provided an uplifting, nurturing, empowering artisan crafter and retail relationship, giving a new avenue to sell their jewelry and provide fair, timely, and reliable pay. This income provides nutrition, education, and healthcare that must be self-funded in developing nations.
Each anklet purchase provides Darin, her mother, and other women in their village with equitable work while allowing them to remain local. Allowing these amazing women to use their traditional jewelry crafting talents while assisting in caring for and watching their children and grandchildren.
Each tassel bracelet makes a difference to the artisans, their families, and their village!
Meanings of the Tassel
Tassels, loosely hanging threads knotted as an embellishment, are a universal ornament seen in varying versions in many cultures around the globe. A sign of luxury and prestige since ancient times, they are handcrafted and labor-intensive, so they became associated with prestige and honor. In Egypt and Mesopotamia, tassels were worn as amulets on headdresses to protect the wearer from evil spirits. Wear your festive bracelet with pride, knowing each artisan who made them has a beautiful, profitable career while providing you with unique international style!
