In honor of International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating women all month long. We just launched the TOGETHER bracelet, that stands as a simple reminder that we have the opportunity to choose how we see the person in front of us. Choosing to love, encourage, and care for others isn’t always easy, but it’s what we strive to do. That’s really why 31 Bits was started… almost ten years ago!
Our mission is to use fashion and design to drive positive change in the world by providing artisans with dignified job opportunities and inspiring customers to live meaningful lives. We’re not about top-down development, but working together, person-to-person. Our artisans have all become incredibly close, and 31 Bits has become so much more to them than just a source of income.
One of our artisans, Mahfud, couldn’t have said it better: “We’re not just friends, we have become like a family.” We value friendship among our artisans and believe everyone deserves to feel known. Having a strong support system is one of the things they value most about working together.
When one person is struggling, whether at work or personally, the other artisans lift her/him up. That’s what being family is all about – being there for each other through thick and thin. Doing life TOGETHER.
Now more than ever, it feels as though the world could use a little more togetherness. We created this bracelet to send a message of hope and unity, and express the beauty of diversity.
Our job isn’t to choose who to love, our job is to LOVE. Our job isn’t to divide, our job is to STAND TOGETHER.
