Stay Warm With Animal Friendly Eco Fabrics!


When you think of winter coats, sweaters, and accessories do you think of products made from wool, leather, suede, down, or fur? If so, Please consider switching to fabrics that are sustainable and animal friendly.

Why? Because, it is a more compassionate and ethical choice.

Item of the Day: Mata Traders Peacock Necklace


The Mata Traders Peacock Necklace is Fair trade. Available in gold/red (as shown).
Length: 13 1/2"- 17". Materials: Brass and Glass. $15.

Mata Traders jewelry is produced by a fair trade organization in India that creates avenues of employment for economically disadvantaged artisans and craftsmen in the home-based sector. The goal of the group is to ensure that the entire jewelry making process is non-exploitive, from bead production to the stringing of the necklaces. They enforce strict health and safety standards by making sure that the communal furnaces used to make glass beads are ventilated properly, and by using dust-sucking chambers for their stone working processes. The group also has a strong commitment to combating child labor in the manufacturing sector.
