Hi all, I’ve been attempting to post a brand spotlight at the beginning of each month but have been totally failing. So despite it being more than half way through June, it’s time for another sustainable (in this case ethical) spotlight!! This month I’m excited to feature a brand I’ve mentioned before, Fair Anita. I’ve been following Fair Anita since the beginning of my ethical fashion journey and I’ve always admired what they stand for. I’ve also love their fair trade accessories so I was so excited when they reached out to me about collaborating. They sent me these beautiful earrings, and I wanted to share a bit more about the brand as well as my other faves!
About the Brand
Fair Anita is all about women investing in women! They are a social enterprise that sells fair trade products made by over 8,000 marginalized women. They partner with female artisans in different countries to provide them with living wages and long term employment. They’re allowing women opportunities to economic independence and helping them become leaders in their community.
Fair Anita works to empower women in four different ways. They sell fair trade products, promote skills and talent development, host workshops, and give back to the community. You can read a more detailed breakdown here! They also promote gender equality and responsible consumption and production!
Why I Love Them
I love Fair Anita because of their commitment to investing in women. In addition to their work with female artisans they also work to encourage female entrepreneurship everywhere. Across the U.S. they host workshops and mentorship programs to provide more women with business resources. They truly are the epitome of women helping women!
I also love being able to invest in cute, fair trade accessories while knowing they were made responsibly. I can feel good about my purchases knowing I am supporting female entrepreneurs and fair wages. I also love their transparency! Fair Anita has a page dedicated to all the artisans they work with. You can read about each country and the artisans there who make your accessories!
I loved the Tori earrings Fair Anita sent me, so I wanted to share a few of my other favorite pieces! All my favorite picks are jewelry, but they also have plenty of other accessories worth checking out too!
All in all I would definitely recommend checking Fair Anita out. They combine cute products with ethical business practices, what more could you ask for?!
