“As a consumer, you can be both fashionable & responsible.”
Be inspired by the vibrant colors of the Sari Bracelet, made by artisans of the Ana Art Group in Old Delhi, India.
Their designs are not only fashion forward but also eco-friendly.
The Sari Bracelet design features two braids made from recycled pieces of saris, connected together with a metal closure.
Artistically, they transformed a traditional Indian garment, into an accessory piece that can JAZZ UP your attire for a day on the town.
When Twig Design & Style began carrying the Handmade Expressions product line, we were encouraged by their Fair Trade and ethically responsible business practices.
Ana Art Group Story:
Handmade Expressions started working with the Ana Art Group after receiving an email from a young girl named Sana living in Jama Masjid, Old Delhi, India. She explained that her family and members of the community make jewelry, but they were being mistreated by their current employers. Sana found hope for the future through the fair employment opportunities offered by partnering with Handmade Expressions.
Ruchi, the product designer and developer for Handmade Expressions, and Rashmi, the sourcing and artisan relations coordinator, met with Sana’s family in their home in India. After meeting with the family and hearing the unjust story of Sana’s community, they were reminded of the overlying reason why Fair Trade is integral in creating sustainable working environments.
Moved by the story of the Ana Art Group, their willingness to work and the beautiful products made by the small community, Handmade Expressions started supporting the Ana Art Group.
Twig Design & Style is grateful to support companies like Handmade Expressions.
“Their products not only define style – but, they TELL A STORY, the story of the artisan who made it.”
