As we all know, I love buying from local artists or brands that help make a difference in our world. I believe that helping others helps us get closer and work together. A world working against each other can be a little chaotic. I decided, not to long ago, to do a giveaway with Sashka Co and my jewelry shop, Anabella's Jewelry and came to learn much more about the company itself that I decided to join with them. They don't just make some gorgeous roll on bracelets in many colors but they also help with a very amazing cause. Sashka Co. helps empower artisans in need to rise above poverty in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal through fair trade. Let me tell you all about this amazing brand and why you need to own one (or all) of their beautiful bracelets.
The bracelets are so easy to put on. They're a perfect fit and best of all they are handcrafted with love. Each bracelet is carefully handmade, bead by bead, with skill, love, passion, and some of the world's finest glass and sterling silver beads by women in Nepal. Proceeds from each bracelet sold goes to these women that help make these gorgeous bracelets. How awesome is that? A handmade bracelet all the way from Nepal! Did I mention that they're at a reasonable price as well.
Like mentioned before, Sashka Co helps empower these artisans through fair trade. "What is fair trade?," you may ask. Well "fair trade enables sustainable development and community empowerment by cultivating a more equitable global trade model that benefits farmers, workers, consumers, industry, and the earth."
How does empowerment through fair trade even work? Well here's how... Fair trade allows these workers to receive a living wage that covers their basic needs such as food, shelter, education, and health care for their families. It also provides a long term investment and stable relationship between importers and producers. Empowerment for women providing employment without discrimination, ensuring equal pay for equal work for both men and women. This also provides women with leadership positions and an equal voice in decision making of the company and new products to come. Fair trade also provides a safe and healthy working conditions to their employers. This means that they won't over work their employers and no forced or exploited child labor. I think these are some pretty awesome reasons to support Sashka Co and purchase their beautiful bracelets. If not here's more.

Look at how beautiful these glass beaded bracelets are?! And best of all they are perfect with any outfit. Whether it's a date night, bridal set for your bridesmaids, or just a casual beach day, these are perfect for every day wear. They're so easy to roll on and match with your outfits and look at all of their colors and patterns. The ones pictured above are available on their website now. I love bright colors. Can you tell?
The bracelets I have pictured above are my favorite ones... though it was a hard decision to choose I'm still very pleased with my decision. Can't wait to get more to add to my collection. The one pictured on the top in colors of turquoise, orange, and purple is the S8. The one on the bottom left is the C18. The one to the bottom right is H9. The pictures I took don't do it justice.
