Just TradeTie one on…and we don’t mean have another round cause Friday is just a day away.

Rather, tie yourself up with these Ribbon Rings made from ribbons of matte brass that undulate around your fingers.

They’re produced by Just Trade, a UK company that as its name implies is all about Fair Trade. The Ribbon Rings are part of a contemporary collection is designed and crafted by Cinthia, Nieves and Cristina, three rising stars of Just Trade’s Zoe Project in Lima, Peru.

“We work collaboratively on the design of all our products with the artisans who make them,” Just Trade says. “By teaching the fundamentals of design, we give the artisans that we work with the tools to take an active part in the product development process, encouraging a sense of pride and ownership in the work.”

Such a notion seems duly appropriate to have a ribbon tied around them.
