JADEtribe, started by Kimberly Hartman, is a fashion line consisting of 100% natural and ethical handbags and jewelry. Hartman was inspired to start the brand during a trip to Laos, where she realized she could benefit textile artisans by purchasing their textiles directly from them and at a fair price while also creating the opportunity to employ other women at a fair wage to create unique handbags.
JADEtribe, described as "a little bit beach-y, a little bit bohemian jet set," on its website, is a chic brand with a conscience. All of the materials used to produce the purses are eco-friendly, handmade and fairly traded.
The JADEtribe website features a helpful interactive store locating map in order to find stockists in a particular city.
