Artisans Across the Globe
Artisans across the globe.
This month, we’re introducing our clients to Noonday Collection, a super cute business with an inspiring cause behind it. Noonday Collection uses fashionable accessories to create meaningful opportunities across the globe. Using fashion to make the world a better place. Sounds amazing, right? The collection features hand-made everything from necklaces, earrings, bracelets, hand bags and totes, scarves, and even super cute travel accessories.
The story behind the brand starts with a woman named Jessica Honegger. In 2010, Jessica connected with two very talented jewelry makers in Uganda with a dream of using their jewelry to create more jobs in their community. Their story and motivation truly inspired her to find a way to help. Jessica returned home and hosted the first Noonday Trunk Show, selling their jewelry to help raise more funds. Women everywhere instantly fell in love with the style and Jessica’s story behind Noonday Collection. This gave Jessica the dream of starting a business that would help to alleviate poverty through entrepreneurship.
Today, the two jewelry makers in Uganda, Jalia and Daniel, are now owners of a business that is thriving by creating dignified work for over 400 Artisans in their community. Noonday is also currently partnered with 21 Artisan Businesses in 14 countries. This dream has created opportunity for more than 4,500 Artisans and has positively impacted tons of family members across the globe.
