Same Sky is one of the fair trade crochet organizations I’ve written about in the past that works with artisans in other countries to create original crochet jewelry sold at higher-end prices in developed nations, offering a sustainable living through crafting.
New Crochet Bracelet Set from Same Sky
They have just released a new limited edition one-size-fits-all crochet bracelet set called the “Hematite” Ooh La La, Prosperity Set. The set features three unique crochet techniques: 3-Bead Spiral, Polka Dot, Random Spun. I love seeing these different crochet jewelry techniques used in a luxury-style item that looks so different from what people normally think of as crochet.

More about Same Sky
Same Sky was founded in 2008. It specifically works to assist HIV+ women and women with AIDS who were survivors of genocide. These women were exposed to AIDS as a direct effect of the sexual assaults they experienced during the period of genocide. During this time they also lost their husbands and other male relatives, leaving them facing poverty once the genocide was over. Same Sky aims to reverse this situation, giving the women back their dignity and their self-esteem through crochet-based entrepreneurship.
