The beating heart of our company, in the beating heart of India
|The beating heart of our company, in the beating heart of India|
Ever since the beginning, Sol Jewels has been enamored with northern India. Since my first trip to India, 25 years ago, I traveled extensively through this region. in the beginning I was backpacking through India, buying beads and findings for my handcrafted (by me) jewelry business back home. Ever since the shift in our business model, about 15 years ago, I started looking for an ethical and fair group of artisan to work with. Let's be honest: in India, especially in the handcrafted jewelry line, child labor and unhealthy working conditions are an everyday normalcy.
I chose to work with the artisans I work with because their producer group is not only Fair Trade Certified, but they are amazing people. A group of artisans working together, in a happy, healthy, and safe environment being paid fair wages.
At Sol Jewels we wouldn't have it any other way ❤
