31 Bits works with Javanese artisans who have spent years studying and perfecting the craft of creating jewelry from brass.
Here artisans are able to work full-time, allowing them to provide for their families, send their kids to school, and put money into savings. For them, it’s not just about making money, it’s about doing something they love. From the first cut of brass to the soldering and sanding to the final polish, the long and intricate process of creating a piece of jewelry is creative, expressive, and fulfilling.
The brand also works with over 80 artisans in Uganda, who make jewelry out of beautiful, recycled paper beads. After five years of training, business courses, mentorships and so much more, Ugandan artisans leave our program empowered and thriving – and running small businesses of their own!
This model allows the fair trade jewelry brand to stay funded through product sales. Which ultimately means your purchases directly impact and empower women around the globe.
