Aid Through Trade are the creator of The Original Roll-On® Bracelet - a Fair Trade, bracelet that is ethically crafted by women in Nepal.
Their vision is to empower the lives of women through ethical, fair, and sustainable employment.
While teaching in Nepal, Damian Jones became inspired by the artisans of the Kathmandu Valley and the use of glass beads in the Nepalese culture. Damian visited many artisans in various regions of Nepal, and observed the artisans as they created unique designs. Damian recognised that although the designs varied, there was one undeniable constant across all villages:
women’s lives changed dramatically when they had an income.
Upon return, Damian began to conceptualize the idea of working with artisans in a fair, dignified manner as a way to improve their lives. Damian quickly realized that if he were going to succeed in a global marketplace, he would need to emphasize continual design and re-design….
Please note that each bracelet is unique therefore designs will differ slightly. If you wish for a specific one in the first photo then please do not hesitate to contact us directly. Thank you!
