Australian ethical and sustainable accessories brand Woodfolk, has launched Earth, its SS19 collection of jewellery, homewares and accessories. Designed in Australia and humbly handmade in collaboration with artisan families throughout Nepal, Woodfolk has a strong commitment to working with small family-run businesses and Women-focused organisations. With a passion for creating opportunity, self-determination, support and hope in Nepalese communities through social entrepreneurship, Woodfolk’s relationships in Nepal are built on trust, equality, fair trade and a long term goal of bringing meaningful change to their lives, supporting through trade, not aid.
With a passion for demonstrating that change is possible for a more sustainable future within the fashion industry, Woodfolk works to educate consumers about their purchasing habits, with the purpose to lift the veil on supply chain transparancy. Led by movements such as Fashion Revolution, consumers are calling out the transparancy practices of brands globally and Woodfolk is one Australian brand at the forefront of the movement that is revolutionising how information about brands’ manufacturing practices are shared with consumers.
“Woodfolk was born five years ago out of a personal passion to design beautiful accessories that make a meaningful change to the lives of others. The continued work with our artisans is a testament to the design and development of each piece and we’re so excited to launch our seventh range,” says Woodfolk Founder and jewellery designer, Julia Denes.
Earth brings it back to basics, from materials to overall aesthetic, it is organic and rustic with rich colours that allows us to show the beauty in imperfection.
Since it’s launch in 2013, Woodfolk’s range has steadily evolved while maintaining the brand’s ethos and character, aspects that make each piece simply unique. Earth includes a range of jewellery, homewares and accessories made by hand from ceramic, stoneware and natural Nepalese hardwood. From necklaces, earrings and rings to plates, vases and hand-woven tote bags, Earth maintains Woodfolk’s exclusive design aesthetic while conveying simplicity, feminitity and conscious style.
Complementing the wearer or home rather than overtake, Woodfolk’s pieces are feminine, earthy and minimalist, boasting rich colour combinations made possible by the special manufacturing techniques, resulting in a range of accessories that are as unique to the next.
Woodfolk pieces are made from sustainably grown Nepalese hardwood and the brand uses natural or non-toxic dyes and 100% recycled paper. All cotton pouch product packaging are hand made by partner artisans, a Women’s Co-Operative just outside of Kathmandu Valley, and Woodfolk uses traditional ink and handpressed stamps across all packaging. Working in harmony and balance with communities in need and with nature, Woodfolk are passionate about creating pieces that do not impact the environment and create viable opportunities that assist artisans and their families in creating sustainable change in their lives.
