Hi Guillermo,

Thanks for your message - I am only travelling to Nigeria in March but I am actually planning a bit of a 'tour' starting sometime around July. I'm currently working as a product developer at Burberry in London but planning to throw in the corporate towel and follow my heart into producing fashion sustainably/ethically. My plans are to travel around Africa (mainly) and visit producers and projects, maybe work or volunteer where I can, to see how people are working and gather a network of contacts before I settle and start my own business. If you think you could use me at any point in the next year then I'd love to come and visit you!

Hi Bahar
thanx 4 yr interest in our jewelry. The attached document should give u a quick idea of the Project & of course u are welcome to contact me via email if you need further info.
it is a very young project, but very succesful thanx to the commitment & devotion of the group members & our passion for what we do.
We want to expand into other international markets & the US is so far totally open to opportunities by interested parties such as shops, agents,distributors. We can also love to work together with designers like yourself to develop Bespoke ranges that could carry your design signature.
I wait to hear from you again
Wishing you a Merry Christmas

Greetings Guillermo,

Thank you for your email. This is so exciting to be a part of a greater movement that is sweeping the fashion industry step by step thru all these individual artists and small companies. The future is sustainable and people like us will be the ones who bring about the changes. Congratulations on your future success.
