The way we work with our artisans is fair trade, but we also want our products to be fair trade. That's why we carefully select where our products come from. Also our paper gifts. Like the garland cards. Products that are made with attention, also deserve special attention. Because they are beautiful stories. Stories on - and made of - paper. For the festive season.
The word holidays comes from the Old English word hāligdæg. Quite literally, holy days. Days that we cherish, days for resting and reflecting. Days of giving and being grateful. No work commitments, just time to care. For ourselves and for each other. And what makes a better gift than a handmade present with meaning?
We all have our own personality and our own character, just like our gemstones. Together we capture all the stories. In honor of our fifteenth anniversary, A Beautiful Story has designed a limited edition Anniversary Collection. Different types of gemstones combined in eight different styles. To celebrate you and me.
“As we look back on 15 years of A Beautiful Story, there's one thing we've learned: if you're stuck, ask for help. There are always angels crossing your path wanting to give support. This time for our anniversary. Because of corona we had to cut our events budget. We were jumping with joy when several companies wanted to sponsor our event. Because of them, our anniversary is still possible.
It's 2006 when Cathelijne decides to save a Nepalese silver factory in distress. Now, 15 years later, we look back on this journey with her. A road with highs and lows. Best lesson learned? We have to do it together!
How do you lead a good life in Nepal? What do you need? And how can we at A Beautiful Story ensure that we create stable jobs with a positive impact? Those were the questions we asked ourselves in 2018.
At A Beautiful Story we make lucky tools: jewelry, greeting cards and gifts that do something. That help you on your life journey. A gemstone that gives wings, a bracelet that brings luck, a deck of cards that provides insights. Our gifts all tell their own story. And one story leads to another. This is Martine's story, she got in touch with A Beautiful Story a few years ago. Her story left us without words.
The corona crisis is hitting us hard. No turnover, the supply of jewelry is running out and our artisans can no longer produce anything. The workshops are closed, because Nepal is in lockdown. Fortunately everyone is healthy, and we would love to get back to work soon.
