I was sent this cute bracelet to review from Esprit. Apart from the fact that the bracelet looks great, there is far more to it just being a fashion accessory. Purchasing this bracelet from Esprit will go towards helping contribute to the economic empowerment of artisans in Kenya as well as tackling gender inequality and breaking the violence against women around the world.
Esprit has partnered with the Australian National Committee for UN Women and will donate 10 per cent of all sales from 2 – 8 March 2015 from freestanding Esprit, Esprit MYER concessions and the Esprit online store in the lead up to International Women’s Day (IWD), Sunday 8 March 2015. Esprit stores in Australia & New Zealand will also sell IWD purple ribbons for $3 each, to be worn on IWD in show of support for women around the world.
In addition to the annual campaign, Esprit Australia & New Zealand and UN Trust Fund (UNTF) have teamed up with SOKO, an ethical fashion brand that empowers artisans and women globally, to create a unique pair of handcrafted bracelets with 100 per cent of the proceeds from sales dedicated to the UNTF.
The bracelets feature an Esprit logo charm and can be purchased for $30. So far the SOKO bracelet has had great success with international stars Gisele Bundchen and Nicole Kidman showing their support. I have already had a few comments about mine, pictured below, which I took for my instagram account.
As an ongoing commitment, Esprit plans to sell the bracelets all year round. They will be available starting from March in Esprit stores in Australia & New Zealand and online at www.esprit.com.au
