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 first hand contact with real people in the developing world and 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.
Visit our online shop to order your fairtrade goods and collect from our shop. We have a selection of items online, but if there is anything else you want to add to your bag, just call or email us.
As a cooperative, with only three paid members of staff, we’re always on the lookout for dedicated and sociable volunteers. We are also looking to expand our voluntary Board of Directors. Get in touch today for more information.
