All of Just Trade's crocheted cotton brooches are handmade by the ladies of the Hope Jewellery Project, based in the shanty towns and provinces of Lima, Peru. This project allows women to work part time and from home. They are paid fairly and have flexible working hours, meaning they still have plenty of time to care for their children.
Brooches have plated steel brooch backs.
Dimensions: approx size 4.5cm x 3cm
Founded in 2006 Just Trade collaborates with artisans around the world to create handmade jewellery and accessories.
Born out of the recognition that in order for small Fair Trade projects to be sustainable, they need a long-term route to market for their goods. Just Trade now works with eight groups of artisans in Peru, Ecuador, India, Indonesia and Vietnam.
