Ecological and Ethical Accessories Designer
Posted on December 23 2016
We applaud Jianhui Yan for his ecological and ethical approach to producing his accessories. Millions of wooden beads are sourced from wood furniture scraps and dyed with ecologically friendly dyes. He also uses reclaimed rubber and cotton.
Born and raised in a poor countryside village in China, Jianhui seeks out, trains, and provides living wage salaries to the disadvantaged in his homeland to make his accessories by hand, rather than maximizing his personal profits by utilizing beading and crocheting machinery. Thank you Jianhui.
