Achkiy mini flower pendant

Posted on

This handcrafted flower pendant from new supplier Achkiy is made in Peru from brushed silver. It’s perfect for those who like delicate and understated but beautiful jewellery!

Achkiy (pronounced Ash-key) might be one of Just Fair Trade’s newest suppliers but for twenty years they’ve been building an organisation that is ‘working to bring light [‘achkiy’] and hope to some of Peru’s most impoverished communities’. Founders Ruth (from Peru) and Julia (from the UK) started by running workshops for women in Lima but the organisation now works with a number of different initiatives across Peru, still deliberately drawing together small groups of women who can take ownership of the project and form co-operatives.

Training is delivered by Achkiy Training and Development, a charity set up to provide workers with marketable skills. All of the profits from Achkiy’s trading arm are invested into this charity.
