Ecouterre loves the Earth so much, sometimes we just want to wrap ourselves up in it. Via Nativa’s hand-carved wooden jewelry is way better than any homemade daisy chain and far less ephemeral. Plus, the fair-trade-certified company employs local Nicaraguan artisans to hew the pieces from reclaimed and sustainable wood, preserving some of nature’s most beautiful resources into wearable natural treasures.

VIVA VIA NATIVA

Instead of wheeling and dealing with middlemen, Via Nativa works directly with independent artisans, women’s co-ops and nonprofit organizations. Its top priorities: Fair compensation and the health and well-being of its vendors. Selling their crafts isn’t just a means of livelihood for economically disadvantaged artists, however. It’s also a way of preserving their Nicaraguan heritage.

Selling their crafts isn’t just a means of livelihood; it’s also a way of preserving their Nicaraguan heritage.

In addition, most of the necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets are made from reclaimed hardwood; everything else is from Forestry Stewardship Council-certified sources. Chockfull of organic curves, smooth finishes, and inviting woodgrain, each Via Nativa piece carries with it the story of an honest living and the natural splendor that surrounds us.
