What We Do


JustOne is a social enterprise that follows fair trade practices to offer world changing fashion. Through the purchase of JustOne products, you are supporting skilled artisans around the world struggling with poverty. By purchasing their handicrafts, they are able to earn an income to provide for their families and build their capital in a dignified way.   

 

"The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any." - Alice Walker

We are firm believers in the power of just one person, and just one purchase.

 

MISSION
Our mission is to provide dignified income opportunities to skilled artisans in developing countries by connecting them to the global market through long-term fair trading relationships.

VISION
Our vision is to see artisans in developing countries using their skills to provide for their families, support their communities, and conquer poverty. 

 

VALUES

Ethical - we follow fair trade practices to ensure that we treat our artisan partners fairly and in a way that is beneficial to both people and the environment. We aim to always be open and transparent in our practices and business. 

Equality - we believe in the Golden Rule - to “do unto others as you would have others do to you”. This means treating each person - artisans, retail partners, consumers and everyone in between - with respect and dignity in all interactions.

Environment - we aim to use only materials that can be purchased in the countries of the artisans. We intentionally work with recycled materials as much as we can, repurposing discarded items into works of wearable art. 

Employment - we believe in a hand up rather than a hand out. We are not a charity. We are a social enterprise that provides income opportunities to artisans so they can earn a fair wage and proudly provide for their own families. 

Education - we believe that education is vital for change in developing countries. It is our hope to provide employment so that artisans can send their children to school. We also strive to constantly educate ourselves in new artistry skills, and learning about how to better ourselves and our world.

Empowering - we strive to build supportive, empowering partnerships -- ones that encourage and challenge our artisan partners to confidently strive for excellence in all that they do. 

Excellence - we offer high quality, fashionable pieces people can purchase and wear with pride.
