Fair Trade and Eco-Friendly Products

At Buddhafull Creations, we take pride in the time we take to “search the world” for handmade products that are eco-consciously produced and fair trade. Fair trade refers to the market-based approach of buying goods or materials in a way that ensures producers and artisans in developing countries are receiving a higher price for their products. In addition fair-trade gives access to otherwise marginalized producers by directing them straight to customers and cutting out middlemen. My fair trade personal favorites this season are my beaded bracelets and high-waist belts, designed by a friend and hand loomed by a family in Indonesia. The beadwork is intricate and unique, adorned with wood and abalone, and because we buy as directly as possible we can purchase fair-trade and offer you a great price.

There are many ways to run a business with a “green” mind, I do this by making and buying materials, metals, goods and jewelry that is both beautiful and environmentally friendly so that you can look good and make a difference in our over-industrialized world! Today much of the fashion jewelry found in department stores and mall boutiques are mass produced by near slave labor and come from environmentally unregulated countries. In the last year massive recalls were placed on such jewelry made for children that contained unhealthy levels of cadmium. Cadmium is a toxic element known to cause nervous system damage!

We seek to create fashionable, sustainable jewelry without depleting natural resources and your bank account.

When you receive compliments on your new jewelry you’ll be able to share its eco-friendly history, inspiring others to be conscious of the way in which many of today’s goods are produced.

TreeBottom

Carefully crafted one of a kind designs, recycled wool clothing for adults and children.

TreeBottom was started by soulyluna (figurehead/ director of machine operations), Marshall Brainstorm (chief of designs) and Little Beanie (the little seed behind a big idea). ‘Miss Treebottom’ was the nickname Grandpa Henry lovingly used for his wife in reference to to her maiden name ‘Stump.’ It seemed to fit well with our little family operation, and thus our shop name was born.
