1033: New Product Be Smart Budget Wallet

We LOVE 1033's latest product, the Be Smart Budget Wallet. Not only is this wallet adorable, but it is functional too.

Inside each wallet are one change purse and six fabric envelopes where you can insert paper labels for your budget. Do you need a category for transportation? Food? Fun? Felafel? Shopping? Whatever your budget looks like, you can make it happen.

Also inside, there is a section for storing receipts and various cards that you might need to carry with you. This wallet is made to help you with budgeting, but why not make budgeting a little more fun by enveloping it in fun fabrics?

Just as a reminder, 1033 is a company based right here in Amman, they are teaching women marketable skills and quality craftsmanship. Alongside this investment in great product, they are making an impact in alleviating poverty and growing the dignity and influence of these ladies in their families and communities.

So then, by purchasing this excellent product you are not only doing something fun and good for yourself, you can participate in alleviating poverty and growing dignity and influence of the ladies who hand-make each wallet. Sounds like a good deal huh?

New Retail Partner - Latitudes Fair Trade

From The Earth welcomes our newest socially responsible retail partner - Latitudes Fair Trade in Warrenton, Virginia. 
Latitudes Fair Trade opened its doors in December of 2010. Since then, the owner, Lee Owsley, has enjoyed every moment of being able to connect the people of Warrenton with the lives of artisans all over the world. 

Lee Owsley commented on her most recent trip to visit artisan partner Manushi of Kathmandu, Nepal (pictured below), “I feel so much closer to the people I'm partnering with after I have been to their country and understood a bit more about their challenges and joys.
From The Earth is so privileged that Latitudes Fair Trade would choose to carry our handcrafted olive wood products, including one of our most popular pieces - the Branching Out Necklace (pictured below). 
We look forward to the day they visit us in Amman, Jordan. Ahlan wa Sahlan Latitudes Fair Trade!

Fair Trade Jewelry Fall/Winter 2013 Teaser

Sharing small snippets about our upcoming jewelry collections is so much fun!

For our fall/winter 2013 collection, Modern Vintage, our jewelry designer drew inspiration from the past and created a modern day twist that makes these pieces oh so current. Fall fashion colors of deep blue, bold green, and classic red are brought together with our signature olive wood beads with alluring results.

The collection is made up of five pairings, each a modern take on classic shapes. We don't want to share too much information now, but suffice it to say, these pairings are going to know your socks off!

Here are some of the photos that have inspired a few of our pieces.

Is that enough of a tease? Ok, just one more.

Insha'allah, the collection will be ready for purchase in Amman after the eid break and on Amazon US and UK, mid-October. Stay tuned! But until then, take advantage of the huge Rendezvous Around the World sale on Amazon.
