Ethics

Caja is passionate about creating ethical high quality handmade jewellery for you to take with you on your journey for many years to come.

 

Do you care where your jewellery comes from?

 

Everything we own has a story. These jewels not only embody ethnic soul and wanderlust, but a conscious path to help our planet whilst looking after the people within. By purchasing ethical handmade jewellery you are being mindful of fast fashion, factory workers, and mass consumerism.

 

What is fast fashion?

 

Fast fashion is drowning our Earth. Mass produced at very low prices and often in poor working conditions, it is designed to be replaced quickly. Whether it breaks or falls apart, it ends up in landfill. Its so cheap, it's practically disposable. Slow fashion wins the race. Remember: buy less, buy quality. 

 

Sustainability Statement

 

Caja only uses metals and gemstones from certified ethical mines.

All gemstones and shells are 100% natural, meaning they are undyed, organic and completely unique. Due to this slight variances in colour and patterns may occur. 

Caja is committed to creating ethical high quality jewellery whilst being conscious of our beloved Mother Earth.

 

"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!"
