It’s not everyday that we come across a jewelry brand that uses fashion and design to help others rise above poverty, and also happens to be super adorable. 31 Bits happens to be one of my favorite brands that focuses on giving back.
31 Bits started in Southern California by 5 college students, after founder, Kallie Dovel, traveled to Uganda. There she met women who grew up in a war and had nothing. They were single moms with no education and no job, however they were extremely talented artists who made beads and jewelry daily. Kallie was inspired by the female artisans who made beads out of recycled paper and knew she wanted to figure out a way to help them. The idea quickly became 31 Bits.
By helping these women sell their jewelry, they are giving these artists a chance at a fair and consistent income, education and healthcare. They are using fashion to make a difference, and I love them for it!
