Many of you know that predators scam women into leaving their homes with a promise of lucrative work in the city or abroad – only to funnel them into forced labor.
At Celia Grace ethically sourced wedding dresses, we are committed to offering women work that is fulfilling, reliable, and high-paying AND that they can do in or near their home town in order to prevent human trafficking. Work like weaving heirloom silk or making beautiful, meaningful wedding dresses.
Are you engaged to be married or do you know someone who is?
What if your wedding dress or accessories improved the lives of everyone who touched it? Imagine a stunning silk or lace dress, flattering and feminine, with a touch of rustic whimsy or a dramatic silhouette. You are picturing a Celia Grace ethical wedding dress.
Celia Grace wedding dresses are handmade by women’s sewing cooperatives that offer safe, fair, and empowering conditions so that women in developing countries can invest in themselves, their families, and their communities to break the cycle of poverty.
Celia Grace’s ethical wedding dresses and accessories put money directly into the hands of women in rural villages so that those women can keep their daughters in school, remain in their hometown, and therefore prevent human trafficking.
This is an example of one of one of our ethical wedding dresses made following fair trade practices – an understated beauty that steals hearts. In addition to being a beautiful and unique dress, it is also:
~Hand made by a women’s cooperative in Cambodia that follows fair trade practices and offers safe, fair, and empowering work that changes lives.
~The gorgeous, unique silk is hand woven on a traditional wooden loom, preserving an exquisite tradition and putting money directly into the hands of rural women.
~Celia Grace donates a water filtration system so your wedding dress = clean drinking water for a family for life.
Or if you already have your dress, what about an elegant, ethical, hand made silk hair flower?
