A.A, Milwaukee, WI We hope that Artizara products bring not just style to our customers but inspiration and the confidence to help one another grow in love and truly be who they are.This valued customer ordered a few items to reflect her modest lifestyle and stay true to her faith. We wanted to share her selection with you: One piece that she ordered was the Natural Bamboo Hand-woven "Fair-Trade" Wrap Hijab which is a such a great lightweight and versatile piece to have in your wardrobe.
Fair trade is a social movement to bring about equality among the vastly diverse worlds of the developing and underdeveloped economies. Fair Trade relationships take account of all costs of production, both direct and indirect, including the safeguarding of natural resources and meeting future investment needs. The artistic traditions behind these products stem from indigenous cultures which value the earth’s resources and also value the discipline and wisdom inherent in these traditions. By buying fair trade products, you help to: * Preserve Indigenous Cultures * Support Traditional Artisan Communities * Invest in Community-Based Development Programs * Safeguard Natural Resources * Protect the Earth from Exploitation & Pollution Another item was the "Mercy" earrings. These small, delicate earrings are hand-made by Egyptian artists and in sterling silver and turquoise. The calligraphy says "Rahma" which means "Mercy", something that we beg Allah (SWT) for, and pray that He showers Mercy on our sister every single day!
