We’ve got you covered from head to toe (ok, almost) as we bring you the first of this month’s Together Tuesday releases with TWO new summer staples!  

Our Flora Baseball Cap from Mexico and our Daisy Anklet from Thailand are both providing women in rural villages the opportunity to earn a fair wage and use their skills to provide for their families.

These designs are sure to become your new must-wear favorites you’ll wear again and again!

  • With its comfort, easy summer style, and delicate feminine touches you’ll find yourself reaching for the Flora Baseball Cap throughout the summer to keep your tresses tamed and your eyes shielded from the sun. A vacation must-have, it’s the perfect accessory for days by the pool or a breezy stroll along the shore.
  • The stretchy Daisy Anklet is the first anklet offered by Trades of Hope. Once you put it on, it might just remain there until Fall! (and if our fast-moving Daisy Chain Bracelet is any indication of sales, you’ll want to let all your customers know to catch this one while they can!) 
Grab these limited edition designs while supplies last!

The Impact of Your Purchase 

Inspired by Artisan traditions passed down for generations, women in southern Mexico create handcrafted fair-trade jewelry, fashions, and home décor that reflect their ancient culture and create social change. They’re providing safe jobs with fair wages to support local families through financial sustainability, authentic community, and lasting hope. 

 Meet the Artisan: Rebeca’s Story of Hope

As a little girl, Rebeca watched her mom create beautifully embroidered shirts for their family to wear and sell in their local village market in Mexico. Their life was hard, as their single mom raised seven children alone. Their family of eight lived in a very small home, sometimes without enough to eat. The kids started working to sell products to tourists when they were very young. 

Rebeca loved helping her mom and learning how to embroider and weave. But Rebeca wanted her mom to rest, so she took over the business when she was only fifteen years old. Now as an adult, Rebeca’s life is much calmer knowing that she has long-term relationships with fair-trade businesses and clients that love her products. She employs fifteen other women, including three of her sisters.

The Impact of Your Purchase  

This workshop was founded by a local woman named Aoi, who witnessed too many women in Thailand’s rural villages desperate to feed their families and being forced to leave their children behind to find jobs in the city, so they could send money home.

So, she created this workshop that offers skills training, business mentoring, scholarships for Artisans’ children, emergency health care coverage, micro-loan programs, and job flexibility that allow women to work from home. Every purchase supports this rural village workshop in Thailand and helps these women help their families prosper!

Meet the Artisan: Pacharing’s (Pu’s) Story of Hope

I’m lucky because I didn’t want to move to a big city to find a job like many of my friends. I’m very happy doing this work because I can live in my hometown while I raise my two children and send them to school surrounded by grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins!

My quality of life has improved since I became an Artisan. Before I couldn’t pay my bills. Now I can! I have money to help my family, and I enjoy having steady work! I enjoy my work, especially beadwork! I want to develop my designing skills. I dream of having my own shop or being able to create my own designs here!
