Meet Your October Artisans

We're so excited to have Nepal finally join the Giv Box This October. Their original roll on beaded bracelet is something you will never want to take off! This technique has been practiced for a very long time, and is such a beautifully made bracelet set. We're excited to design this exclusive made set with Aid To Trade. Here is more on our design collaboration. This is hands down our favorite box....we haven't taken these arm parties off and you won't either!! 

Aid Through Trade empowers women by creating opportunity through beautifully designed jewelry. Each piece is ethically crafted by artisans in Nepal. Your purchase provides women with a fair income and benefits in a safe and healthy work environment.

Aid Through Trade maintains an office and studio space in the Kathmandu Valley with 15 full-time artisans and management staff. From that office we also coordinate training, production, and quality control with more than 200 artisans working in three village sites throughout Nepal.

You can see why....when Aid Through Trade wanted to team up and have us collab and make a design to help and support their Artisans....we jumped right in. 

This design color pallet is one of our favorites and I we couldn't be more happy with the way it all turned out. Their Artisans did such a good job....that we want to design even more with them. The arm party in your box can not be bought on any other site. This is our own designs with the Artisans and straight to you. Lucky ones! 

Meet Sarsoti....Here above making your bracelets 

Sarsoti moved to Kathmandu with her husband shortly after giving birth to their son in 2013. When he's old enough she hopes to find good schooling for him there. While her husband maintains steady work in construction, it’s hardly enough to get by. Sarsoti never attended school. She's worked for Aid Through Trade for just over a year and is enjoying the freedom that comes with working from home.

Her 12 year old cousin also stays with them, like a daughter, and attends local government school.

 WHAT SHE LIKES ABOUT WORKING FOR AID THROUGH TRADE:
that she can contribute to the family home while still doing her duties as a mother and a wife, and an aunt. What money doesn't go into the house, Sarsoti puts into a women's savings group.

Meet USHA here above making your bracelets. 

Usha got permission from her family marry the young man she loved at age 17. She had just completed her general education with a focus on Economics. Shortly thereafter, her husband went to Dubai to work as a UN peace keeping officer. He returned after 4 years and now works as a security officer for a hotel in Kathmandu’s tourist district. She’s happy to have him home.

 

WHY SHE WORKS FOR AID THROUGH TRADE
Usha started making bracelets for Aid Through Trade shortly after she completed school in 2008. She likes working from home and earning money that she can spend as she pleases. “I can afford to have coffee and snacks with friends without asking my husband for cash,” she told me with a smile.
