A Fair Trade Story - Just Trade Ethical Jewellery & Accessories
Just Trade collaborates with artisans around the world to create handmade jewellery and accessories. Founded in 2006 by jewellery designer Laura Cave, Just Trade is a collaborative, innovative brand.
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 and Vietnam.
Combining traditional craft skills and materials with expert knowledge of contemporary jewellery and accessories, we have developed ranges of unique, characterful pieces with strong appeal in the European market. From exquisite crocheted silverwork to beautifully carved tagua pendants, our distinctive products are made with care and skill from locally-sourced and ethical materials where possible.
What is Fair Trade?
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers. It’s about supporting the development of thriving farming and worker communities that have more control over their futures and protecting the environment in which they live and work.
Just Trade works in partnership with fair trade artisans across the world to create hand made contemporary fashion jewellery for the ethically minded. We are completely committed to the 10 Principles of Fair Trade as set out by the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO).
