Celebrate International Women’s Day by Supporting Women Artisans All Over the GlobeWith the right tools a woman's potential is limitless: ensuring a woman's independence through income generating projects. By Karen Akst Schecter
Celebrate International Women’s Day by supporting women artisans all over the world: your purchases help women help themselves and their families, giving them independence and control over their own lives. Aside from the many women artists we showcase from all over the US, we feature goods for your soul hand crafted by women artisans all over the world, including jewelry made by women who work out of small home-based workshops in Mexico, caring for their children and getting health care while doing so,
mobiles sewn and assembled by hand by a woman in Uganda who feeds her kids and sends them to school with her earnings,
beautiful soapstone candlesticks and platters and small keep sakes made by Kenyan women responsible for supporting their entire family,
pillows hand woven by Bedouin women who started their businesses with money from Israeli women and tallitot and kippot woven and crocheted by hand by the Mayan women of Guatemala, who are educated in the spiritual importance of what they do while earning a livelihood,
personal accessories made by women in Bali who use the funds to support the sustainable development of their entire community and tallit bags made by survivors of the sex trade in Southeast Asia,
and ceramics and candles made by women in southern Africa who are trained with new skills to last a lifetime.
We are committed to improving the livelihoods of all people within reach of the Aesthetic Sense Community through equitable trade practices, fair employment, public accountability, progressive management, transparency and the promotion of social justice. Everything we feature is fairly traded and ethically sourced. Shopping for good at its most powerful!
