This jewellery is made by a small family business using sustainably sourced materials.
12 full time staff and a number of piece meal workers (unemployed mothers who work from home) paint, wax and assemble the jewellery. There is no child labour involved, and workers are paid above the Fair Wage law. They also receive social security contributions, health insurance, and contributions to a home loan scheme.
As a member of “Go Green” the raw materials are replenished and managed. The tree is a fast growing pioneer species and has many uses in traditional medicine including treating fever and bronchitis. Only the branches are used from the trees.
