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

by | Founders

Read Time: 3 min.

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

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 North Asia.

The true beauty of the pieces can be found in the words of women like Julia, Artisan of the Inca Studs, and Lulu, Artisan of the Impressionist Earrings.

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.

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

Rescuing Women from Brothels

“After being physically and sexually abused most of my life and then being trafficked by a boyfriend, I ended up working in a brothel. When this Artisan community’s outreach teams met me in the brothel, I decided to take the opportunity to leave that terrible situation for a job making jewelry.

Since coming to this Artisan community, so many things in my life have changed! I love working at a company who supports me and working with my friends!”

– Lulu, Artisan in North Asia
