fashion find: a peace treaty

Image From: A Peace Treaty

What could possibly be better than beautiful, handmade jewellery? Beautiful, handmade jewellery with a purpose. Recently I stumbled upon the story behind A Peace Treaty and felt the need to share it with my followers. Designed by two friends from differing occupational backgrounds, A Peace Treaty aims to promote ethnic craftsmanship by introducing it to mainstream fashion society. The ethically produced work has a wonderful artisan feel, giving you the sense of one-off treasures, discovered and handpicked from a traditional bazaar.

This social conscious project provides employment to skilled locals in politically stricken countries. Each season travels to a different region and is influenced by the local methods and traditions found there. The result is high quality design mixed with strong ethical purpose.

The materials, shapes and processes create charming and unique jewellery that will work well in your tribal influenced wardrobe.

Support this good cause here.
