Founded in 2016, Emma Aitchison Jewellery has established itself as a sustainable jewellery brand by committing to sustainable production methods in the workplace where possible. Where sustainable methods aren’t currently used, the brand is trying hard to move towards sustainable and ethical practice. Emma makes every effort to run a business that has minimal impact on the environment - a microbusiness that has set out on the right foot.
Emma’s passion for nature has led her to not only raise awareness of climate change but also of fast fashion - Emma believes it is paramount that the message is spread; no more fast fashion and ultimately no more waste. Emma hopes to inspire others to change their habits by encouraging individuals to go green, think before they buy and shop local.
Emma uses 100% recycled silver and gold where possible.
Please note some items are only 70% recycled, and these items are clearly identified.
mma uses Fairtrade silver and gold and takes the Fairtrade Pledge each year, meaning she can use Fairtrade gold and silver. As the business grows, Emma aims to ensure she has the Fairtrade stamp.
