Ethics

We are passionate about creating ethical high quality jewellery for you to take with you on your journey for many years to come.

Everything we own has a story, and the story behind our jewellery starts with a conscious path to tread lightly on our planet whilst looking after the people within. We care deeply about our environment and will always strive to continue learning and improving our sustainable and ethical practises.


Our Production Process


Our production is based out of beautiful Bali, the magical island that inspired our founder to learn the art of silversmithing and start a jewellery label. Our incredible team of artisan jewellers have had their skills and talents passed down to them through the generations. It is our focus to keep the art of craft alive by using traditional methods and techniques that have been used for thousands of years in handmade jewellery making. We only produce our collections in small limited quantities to avoid mass production and over consumption. Our production team work in a safe and supported environment, are paid a fair wage and receive time off and holidays.




Our Materials


Our jewellery is made from recycled 925 sterling silver. We source this from broken jewellery, unused stock, and scrap. This is then skilfully melted down and refined, ready to be made into new beautiful pieces for you to wear. By using recycled silver we are operating a closed loop production, minimising waste, and reducing harm to our beloved Earth.

Our jewellery is hypoallergenic and lead and nickel free. Only the good stuff here.

We only use metals and gemstones that have been responsibly and ethically sourced.

All of our gemstones and shells are 100% natural, meaning they are undyed, organic and completely unique. This is why you will find variety within these pieces which makes them even more beautiful and one of a kind.


Our Packaging


We are doing our best to reduce our use of plastic and single use items as much as possible. For all our orders we use:

- Recyclable mailer boxes
- Recycled card and tissue paper
- Hero Packaging plant based compostable mailer bags
 

Slow Fashion Movement


At Caja we are committed to educating our community on the benefits of choosing quality over quantity and supporting the slow fashion movement. Fast fashion is designed to be replaced quickly as it falls out of the latest 'trends'. Mass produced at very low prices and often in poor working conditions, these items are only worn a handful of times before ending up in landfill. Slow fashion focuses on sustainably creating items that are timeless and made to last. By purchasing slow fashion and ethical high quality items, you are being mindful of our beloved planet Earth. Slow fashion always wins the race.





"I am a firm believer in quality over quantity. I feel it is essential within my role as a New Zealand jewellery designer to promote conscious consumerism. Fashion isn't just about looking good, it's about the story behind it to the footprint it leaves behind. Anything and everything is far more beautiful when sourced with our planet in mind and made with love."
