Introducing the New 7 Wonders of the World – Trades of Hope’s Atlas of Beauty!

by | Founders

Come explore the inspiration behind 7 fashions designed to change the world.

(Read Time: 3 min.)

Atlases serve as diagrams and maps portraying geography and location.

Therefore, with this concept we seek to address and redefine the geography of beauty. There’s room in this world for beauty to be diverse and Atlas of Beauty conceptually is taking us on a journey to discover beauty with an inclusive, global perspective.

This collection serves as a compass as we journey across Thailand, India, Peru, and East Asia.

Come along as we discover beauty through people, stories of struggle and triumph, across countries, and even accessories.

Various tones of clay will be the predominant neutral with the trending color of the moment… green.

2nd New Wonder of the World

Impressionist Earrings from East Asia – SOLD OUT

Greens and blues play off each other with supporting hues of yellow and black to provide depth.

Trends continue to focus on layering necklaces and bracelets and shining silver with the Inca Studs.

In East Asia, poverty encourages sexual exploitation of women in brothels.

These women want to provide for their families but have few options.

Your purchase helps provide sex trafficking survivors with holistic care, dignified income, and hope.

3rd New Wonder of the World

Inca Studs from Peru

These genuine chrysocolla stone earrings from Peru are simply stunning with natural green and dark-blue swirls.

4th New Wonder of the World

Grove Bracelet from Thailand – Shop to Inspire Hope

Aoi, Artisan in Thailand

Like many women in Thailand, Aoi’s husband was not able to find a job that provided enough income to support their family of five. Wanting to send their children to school – but challenged by the fact that schools in Thailand are not free – Aoi learned how to design and create jewelry in this local workshop. Now, her work as a fair-trade Artisan provides Aoi with enough income to send her children to school.

5th & 6th New Wonders of the World

Kavita Necklace & Kavita Bracelet from India – SOLD OUT

7th New Wonder of the World

Palomino Crossbody from India – SOLD OUT

The Palomino Crossbody offers a beautiful, international surprise inspired by Kate Spade with a blue peacock pattern waiting inside.

The true beauty of the pieces can be found in the words of women like Julia, who makes our Inca Studs.

Changing Lives in Peru

“If I wasn’t an Artisan, my economic status through the pandemic would be hard. I feel blessed! This order saved us! Trades of Hope was there in an important moment when our work decreased.

The Pandemic was difficult for many families. Mine was not an exception. My daughter and son were unemployed. I was working from home with some Inca Studs in my charge.

This order helped so much because I continued working in my house! Our job is not only about a piece of jewelry. It’s a part of our hearts!” – Julia, Artisan in Peru
