Organized around fair trade principles, Hla Day is the social enterprise organization from where these earrings come. Hla Day works with over 50 different producer groups. Anyone can walk in with a craft design and they will help them refine it and bring it to market. The store aims to avoid competing with traditional craftsmen, and so offers traditional crafts with a modern twist. They also believe that recycled products are the future!
