An ethical lifestyle label that partners with talented women artisans living in some of the most challenging regions in the world.
It’s estimated that approximately 2.5 billion people around the world live in poverty. Women are typically poorer and have fewer options for earning a livelihood to provide adequate food, housing and education. They are also often the ‘change agents’ and are more likely to invest their earnings into improving the lives of their families.
One Another works directly with collectives located in Bangladesh, India and South Africa, helping provide employment to over 30 women and empower them to rise above poverty. These women may be widowed or have parents too sick to work, we provide fair pay, safe and clean working conditions and the option to work at home, should they need to care for their family. This simple thing which we take for granted, empowers the women to rise above poverty to dream new dreams for themselves and their families.
The range focuses on texture and embraces the unique qualities of producing everything by hand. The perfect embroidery is hand stitched in India, the beautiful loop weaving and woven bowls are from South Africa, the hand loomed wool throws are from near the Nepal border and the braided cushions are hand made by women rescued from trafficking in Bangladesh.
When you buy something from One Another, you're not just buying a cushion or a throw because behind every product is a person and your purchase does make a difference. By investing in women we hope to provide a sustainable transformation where mothers can put food on the table, send their children to school and create a better future for their families.
We may not be able to change the world but we can change the lives of these women, one cushion, one throw and one clutch at a time.
