I keep reading about Made jewellery and their recent collaboration with model Laura Bailey (see this month’s Marie Claire and the Sunday Times Style magazine) and I wanted to find out a bit more about the company and what it has to offer.
Flip Flop necklace by Vicki Sarge, £60
Now in my mind, fair trade plus fashion equals a product I don’t particularly like but feel i should buy to support the cause. However, Made believes in creating products which people actually want to own whilst at the same time radically improve the lives of impoverished communities in developing countries. After browsing their collections, I can assure you that a number of their gorgeously unique, high quality designer accessories will be featuring high on my Christmas list!! Ideal for gifts for friends too.
Brass Sheet Necklace by Bex Rox, £130
Salama Bracelet by Laura Bailey, £18
All Made products are designed by influential designers, then sourced and created within disadvantaged communities across East Africa. With designer collaborations including Vicki Sarge (who also designs for the amazing Erickson Beamon), Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof, how can you resist? And the prices are reasonable. I’m sold!
Recycled Glass Cuff by Pippa Small, £75
Beaten Brass Oversized Cuff, £45
