Five Accessories was born from the concept of making a positive impact on five individuals at a time. The organization focuses on fair trade practices and socially conscious products that truly make a difference in the lives of those in need. Five Accessories offers a wide selection of stylish fair trade accessories. Items are developed and crafted using fair trade practice standards from five countries: Bali, Honduras, Cambodia, India and at-need areas of the US. Their mission is to empower and deliver sustainable livelihoods for workers and their communities.
Through the Five Accessories website, consumers can shop for and purchase a variety of fair trade accessories, from eco-friendly handbags and recycled purses to sustainable jewelry. The merchandise is crafted from recycled and natural materials such as bamboo, coconut shells and even old mosquito netting. Make a unique fashion statement or start a conversation with your new, stylish digs – it’s the perfect way to share your support and tell others about this worthy cause. Shop for items through the website or find their fair trade accessories in one of the over 100 stores nationwide that offer these incredible products.
In addition to their fair trade practices abroad, Five Accessories recently started an income generating program in Chicago under their new line called Off The Street, which has its own section on the website. This line uses recycled urban refuse and is focused on helping people, many formerly homeless, stay off the street through gainful employment. As the website states, “it’s pride and purpose through the making of product”. Why not lend a helping hand and support this important cause buy purchasing your fair trade accessories from Five Accessories?
