Revy means revitalization.
Revy approaches nature as we do our artisans. With nature, their emphasis is both on recycling and natural materials. Their product line consists of: jewelry created from clay, bamboo, coconut shells and a variety of seeds; handbags dyed with indigo, teak, tree moss and other organic materials; and recycled materials including plastic bags, glass, used tires and leather scraps.
The people of El Salvador are among the most generous and determined you'll find anywhere. Emerging from a civil war, they are striving to improve their daily lives and rebuild their ravaged country. Revy works with individuals and co-ops to help them earn a living wage and provide a brighter future for themselves and their children.
Revy provides each of their artisan co-ops with:
A fair price with cash advances and prompt payments
Collaboration on designs and production methods
Transparency by sharing costs and pricing
Long term relationships with job security
Revy believes that all workers have the right of association to form their own co-op, receive a living wage, and work without fear of abuse or their own safety. Economic justice and social justice cannot be separated.
When you purchase a Revy item, you help the people of El Salvador and the planet at the same time.
