One of my favorite things to do as an Influencer is to share with you amazing products, especially those with amazing stories behind them. I really love to hear how some companies are formed or where the products originate. If someone’s hands are on the actual product that makes it to me – even better. There is no better feeling in the world than knowing you are helping someone make a better life for themselves by supporting what they do.
Maybe it’s because I’m a mom and I really love small businesses. Or maybe it’s because this bracelet is so adorable (and I’ve had a dozen people ask me about it). Maybe I just love telling the story of how it came to be. Whatever the reason, I think it’s an important story to tell.

Created 16 years ago, the story of how Village Artisan came to be is empowering. A Canadian couple dreamed of helping the struggling North Indian artisan market. Hearing story after story of artists wanting a fair market to sell their goods, they created Village Artisan. Making only unique quality products, this company now employs over 100 artists.
By finding a way to give these individuals sustainable profits, Village Artisan has supported impoverished families, a clean water initiative, improved healthcare and began the Village Artisan School Sponsorship Program. This program allows Indian children to attend school – what our children groan about, they consider an unreachable luxury.
Village Artisan Products
Village Artisan products are 100% eco-friendly and made from a range of natural and recycled materials. Beautiful, rich-colored sari scarves can be worn in many ways. Handmade soap of deep, earthy scents make a wonderful gift. The diary & cards are made out of 100% recycled paper. And the jewelry is chic and affordable.
I love these big chunky, colorful necklaces & bracelets.
As I mentioned earlier, when I wear this bracelet, I get to tell a story about it as well, the one of the artisan woman in North India ” whose hearts and dreams are carried within this piece.”
Village Artisan available in H-E-B Blooms
Village Artisan brings amazing handcrafted pieces from North India to local H-E-B stores in Texas.
