Simply put, we don't hire women to make jewelry; we make jewelry to hire women. We believe that when women thrive, so do families and communities, and that is what drives us. Madres (which means "mothers" in Spanish) was founded in 2011 by young women from Petaluma eager to empower mothers in need in the Dominican Republic.
By earning fair wages, Madres artisans are empowered to put food on the table, pay for her children's school supplies, or invest in her own education. Madres artisans receive tools and ongoing training in artisanal jewelry-making techniques, equipping them to create beautiful jewelry that symbolize hope for a better future
100% of our proceeds are used to pay Madres artisans and invest in projects within their community. Learn more athttp://madresjewelry.orgmadresjewelry.org.
