Jewellery

Our jewellery range keeps growing and is now from six countries – India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Peru, Chile and the Congo! Take a look at the new colourful glass range of earrings, rings and necklaces from Comparte in Chile on pages 12 and 13 and the silver jewellery from Allpa in Peru sold really well from the July catalogue, so we have added some new stylish contemporary pieces to compliment the range even more! We’ve also added some new fashion pieces from our biggest beaded jewellery supplier, Tara Projects who campaign tirelessly against child labour in India. 3

This new contemporary range of silver jewellery is from Allpa in Peru. These particular designs are based on work by the artist Charles Rennie Macintosh. Allpa was established in 1986 and acts as a direct connection between the global market and Peruvian craftspeople. Allpa (from a Quechua Indian word which means 'earth') fights against poverty by providing loans, skills training and technical help as well as advice about fashion trends to enable artisans to compete.

This beautiful silver jewellery is entirely handmade in a delicate and highly skilled process. Silver is cast with copper and liquid silver is poured into moulds to make it into sheets or threads which are then adjusted to gain the desired thickness. The silver is cut, and then shaped by beating or engraving. Stones are set and the piece is finished by polishing, burnishing or ageing.

MOT01 MOT02

MOT03

This striking coconut and river pearl jewellery has been developed by our supplier Motif in Bangladesh, in response to the recent dramatic drop in business for jewellers who have worked with precious metals for generations. Coconut oil is used in every Bangladeshi household, so Motif’s artisans are able to buy waste coconut shells from local traders. The beads are cleaned and finished with soya oil to bring out each one’s unique deep texture, and combined with river pearls from other parts of Asia to make these distinctive pieces.

back EA012 front These jute bags are from Earth Bags, Kolkata. Jute is the second most important vegetable fibre after cotton and is a long, soft, shiny plant fibre that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. Its fibres are composed primarily of the plant materials cellulose and lignin. And the fact that it is a source of cellulose means that it is quicker to grow. Jute is 100% bio-degradable & recyclable and thus environmentally friendly. It grows best in warm, humid climates; India, Bangladesh, and China are the main producers.

This exciting new range from our design team is made by MKS in Kolkata and combines goat leather with 100% hand woven Mulberry natural silk. The silk comes from Murshidabad, a place in West Bengal famous for silk weaving. The design is hand silk-screen printed.

Murshidabad weavers are in desperate need of support because of the market domination of Chinese silk. Orders for these new bags help the weavers to diversify from solely making silk stoles.

EMA has been trading fairly for over 30 years. Production takes place at a Development Centre on the outskirts of Kolkata, where about 130 people work, 30 of whom are disabled. This ‘Shanti’ or Goat leather comes from Chennai. When EMA receives the raw material, it is examined thoroughly for its thickness, smoothness and most importantly for tick marks. The leather is then cut, the design embossed, painted, glazed, stitched, lined and lacquered to prevent fading by sunlight.

CreArte’s worry dolls are a great gift. The story goes that if you put them under your pillow at night, they will take your worries away! CreArte supports 400 producers who are organized in cooperatives, social associations and family workshops, mostly in rural areas of Guatemala. The worry dolls are made by a group of 16 Kakchiquel Mayan Women in the region of Sololå. Women in indigenous communities such as this would have no source of income if it were not for handicraft production.

Bezalila, in Madagascar, is a great new supplier which makes these fantastic models out of recycled tin cans. It was formed in 1994 as a co-operative structure to unite disparate workshops which were working with Malagasy handicrafts. Bezalila provides Fair Trade employment to formerly impoverished artisans in crafts including the modelling of these recycled tin cans, called "Kapoaka". With the profits generated by the workshops, the Kapoaka artisans have improved their houses, bought rice fields, and established a pig-breeding farm.

It is usual to recycle as much as possible in Bangladesh and traders buy waste materials from people house to house. The wrappers are washed thoroughly with soap and laid out in the sun to dry then distributed to women in their homes to be woven into baskets.

Mai Vietnamese Handicrafts aims to promote self-reliance amongst disadvantaged families and ethnic minorities in Southern Vietnam. Mai has established itself as the primary marketing agent for the Vietnamese handicrafts of neglected women in rural areas. These great new storage items are made from water hyacinth and bamboo. The harvesting of dried water hyacinth for handicrafts is positive for the local community as it is a weed which increases water loss, reduces biodiversity and affects local fishermen.

A reverse image of a design is transferred on to brass blocks and then brass dies are pressed on to pieces of aluminium using a power press. The embossed pieces are then beaten delicately with a wooden mallet to make them smooth. Finally the aluminium sheets are attached to wooden skeletons to make these beautiful pieces.

Most of the carved pieces on the next few pages are made from Shesham wood, in a small town called Saharanpur, about 100 miles north of New Delhi. These 'secret lock boxes' have a wonderful sliding strip of wood which locks the box and is very hard to detect.

ASP061

They are made by Aspiration, an organisation which aims to promote and develop cottage industries without publicising its own work. It provides financial assistance to all its artisans, and encourages them to send their children to school.

Shesham wood takes about 20 years to mature (compared to 80-90 years for hardwoods like teak, and 7-10 years for the softest woods). Production is organised in family groups; machinery is minimal, and most of the work is done sitting cross-legged on the floor.

ASP005

Most carvers are Muslims and you can see this influence in the patterns of brass inlay or 'jali' carving in many of the items.

This black stone is palewa stone, which comes from Rajasthan and central India, and is actually grey before being polished with wax polish. The basic shape of each piece is created on a lathe and each item is then hand-carved by the master craftsmen of the Agra bazaar, where the traditional skills of carving have been passed down through the generations. In the past these craftsmen have been badly exploited by buyers, but Tara Projects have helped them to form a model Fair Trade workshop.

These hangings are made by Gujerati women using recycled saris. Many Gujerati families have migrated to New Delhi after finding it impossible to make a living in their homeland, and continuing the patchwork tradition provides an important supplement to their income. They have been selling well in our shops and are fantastic value. Sizes may vary slightly, colours and patterns a lot!

CIAP (The Inter-Regional Centre of Artisans of Peru) is a non-profit association of handicraft producers and aims to improve living conditions and support the development of the artisan’s communities. These appliqued patchwork hangings, or ‘Arpilleras’ are made from discarded cloth pieces from the garment industries. These products are made in a poor neighborhood of Lima called "Pamplona Alta", by women who were displaced from rural areas during the political violence of the 1980s. CIAP026

The Chulucanas pottery takes its name from the village in northern Peru where it originates. Each piece is moulded by the hands and feet of traditional artisans and then exquisitely hand-painted before being baked in a kiln with mango leaves. The soot from the leaves naturally stains any unpainted portions with a characteristic espresso colour.

We love the new cat door stopper and stuffed animals made by Mahaguthi in Nepal. They were one of the first Fair Trade organisations in the world, and its founder worked with Gandhi. The keyrings, pencils and chimes from Mitra Bali were one of our first wholesale ranges, over 10 years ago and they keep selling! Don’t forget the finger puppets from Peru, leather purses and money boxes from MKS and tota bells from Sasha in Kolkata ~ when Christmas comes, we can’t seem to get enough of them!

Many of Mahaguthi’s artisans are women who are given the chance to employ traditional skills in their own homes, thus enabling them to generate extra income. Another great way of using recycled materials, these lovely animals are made from woven cotten fabric wastage and are stuffed with flaxseeds.

Approximately 60 women are involved in production, some of whom are in the rural areas on the banks of Lake Titikaka. Handicraft production allows the women to supplement the small income which their families make from farming. The finger puppets are crocheted from drawings.

The wood used for these products is Albesia, one of the fastest growing trees in the world. Each item is individually hand-carved, and hand-painted using non-toxic vegetable dyes. About twenty artisans and their families are supported by the production of these items. To account for the wood they use in handicraft production, Mitra Bali has a tree-planting scheme and plants trees for each of the organisations it supplies. MB151

Sasha is the non-profit marketing outlet for more than 150 groups of Indian craftspersons and producers in West Bengal, Orissa, the North-East and Karnataka.

The number of animals in each mobile is shown in brackets.

Sasha works with these groups to revive crafts and develop new designs and techniques. Under the British Raj, English missionaries introduced stuffed toy making in India. From the typical western rag doll, the designs were indianised with beads and bright colors. The cutting, sewing and assembly are normally done centrally in one place, while the stuffing and decorating work is taken home by the craftswomen.

What is Fair Trade?

Fair Trade aims to transform trading systems and practices in favour of the poor and disadvantaged. It is an alternative to conventional trade, in which multinationals have enormous power, and producers in the South have very little – in fact often they are struggling just to get food on the table. It involves a few key principles: - Market Access for Marginalised Producers. Many producers are excluded from mainstream markets, or only access them via lengthy and inefficient trading chains. Fair Trade helps producers realise the social benefits to their communities of traditional forms of production. It enables buyers to trade with producers who would otherwise be excluded from mainstream markets. It helps shorten trade chains so that producers receive a better price than is the norm in conventional trade. - Sustainable and Equitable Trading relationships. Transactions take account of all costs of production, direct and indirect, including the safeguarding of natural resources and meeting future investment needs. Prices paid enable producers to maintain a sustainable livelihood. There is a commitment to a long-term trading partnership that enables both sides to co-operate through information sharing and planning. - Capacity Building and Empowerment. Fair Trade assists producers to understand more about market conditions and trends, and to develop skills and resources to exert more control over their lives. - Consumer Awareness Raising and Advocacy. Fair Trade provides the basis for connecting producers with consumers and for informing consumers of the need for social justice and the opportunities for change. Consumer support enables Fair Trade organisations to campaign for wider reform of international trading rules, to achieve the ultimate goal of a just and equitable global trading system.

Carbon footprints

Most of Shared Earth’s suppliers are thousands of miles away, and we import nearly all our products by sea to minimise any harmful environmental impact. But we can’t help thinking about the effect our travelling has on global warming. It’s important to visit our suppliers – to develop new products, discuss financial issues and market trends, check that Fair Trade standards are being applied, and learn about the problems suppliers may be having. But for countries like India, flying is the only option. We normally make 2 or 3 trips each year.

From 2008, we will analyse the effect these flights have in terms of CO2 emissions, and we will fund the planting of trees to compensate, hopefully using a Fair Trade producer organisation. It would be fantastic if the growing and felling of trees could be done on Fair Trade principles (including sustainable production) as well as the carving of the products we buy and sell. As far as we know, we’ll be the first Fair Trade organisation to do this.

Interested in a Shared Earth franchise?

Our 7 shops are all profitable, and we believe we have an excellent formula for a profitable business. We took over an ailing shop in 2006 and increased sales in the first year by over 75%! If you’d like more details, look on our website, and contact us by phoning 01904 655314 or emailing franchising@sharedearth.co.uk

“Coffins, Cats and Fair Trade Sex Toys”

Shared Earth is now the largest wholesaler and retailer of Fair Trade products in the UK (other than food), and Jeremy Piercy, its founder, is writing a book about how it all began, what it’s like to be a Fair Trade buyer, and where Fair Trade is going. It’s sure to be a best-seller and we hope you will sell it in your shop!
