About

Fair Anita is a social enterprise that empowers women around the world through fair trade jobs. Fair Anita designs jewelry and accessories that are made by 8,000+ women in 16 countries. All of their products are made from materials sourced locally from the makers. Their Ethiopia collection, for example, is made from bullet casings left over from war that the artisans collect, melt down, and make into beads. Additionally, their Chilean artisans make jewelry out of brass and copper, as those materials are some of Chiles’ most plentiful natural resources.

One of the principles of fair trade is respect for the environment. Fair Anita artisans don’t use toxic chemicals or materials that are bad for the environment. They make things out of recycled or up-cycled materials, and they are always looking at ways to be more sustainable.

We are very proud of the quality of fair trade, handmade products, and we are learning along side our artisans about quality control. Our artisan partners work with locally-sourced high quality materials including brass, copper, and sterling silver. Our goal is to make fair trade accessible and trendy to people who want to shop ethically.
