Belart, a Fair Trade certified company, created by Tulianna and Alejandra Garcés, is a socially conscious jewelry line that provides sustainable employment to internally displaced communities located in post-conflict regions in Colombia. When the company was created more than fifteen years ago, the mother-daughter team set out to confront a humanitarian crisis with deep roots by creating revenue and sustainable employment for those trapped in the lowest levels of poverty: women and indigenous peoples. By partnering with more than three hundred artisans Belart has been able to introduce collections that preserve eroding traditions and celebrate Colombia’s biodiversity. Their designs are inspired by a reverence for nature and a passionate emphasis on devising creative and artistic ways to present issues to the world that most need our attention.
