What’s cooler than being fashionable? Being ethical while at it. With brands quickly jumping on the sustainable wagon, Tuza is one brand that’s actually worth the hype. The jewelry and clothing brand based out of New York and Mexico City has an ethical core and works only with sustainable ingredients.
Founded by Suzzan Atala, Tuza has maintained from the very beginning a made-to-order model in its workshop in the heart of Mexico City. As an outcome, they’ve been able to create jobs for raisins and support local suppliers, as well as provide fair pay to the jewelers, artisans, and craftsmen (& women!) of Mexico City.
Atala also sees the brand as part of the female empowerment movement by creating a community in Tuza Mexico City. Every season, her brand donates a portion of proceeds to female-led organisations dedicated to empowering women to lead in the fight against political, economic, environmental and health crisis across the world.
So now you can own a handmade piece that was both assembled by skilled jewelers and helped change the world, one day at a time. Sounds good to us! Take a look at some of Tuza’s collections in the gallery below and be sure to visit their website for more info:
