It was critical for Judith to consciously create her jewelry and accessories line.
She began working with local Southern California jewelry makers and then found a social entrepreneurship in the Philippines to collaborate with for the brand's larger production. The social enterprise in the Philippines provides sustainable income, pays fair wages and provides a safe work environment for a women’s cooperative in Northern Luzon. By purchasing production from this cooperative, Mala and Mantra is supporting these women and their families, as well as assuring them of sustainable income while expanding their livelihood.
This is the most significant part of the entrepreneurial equation for Judith: to create fair fashion inspired by spirit, fit for the soul.
