This red ribbon brooch was designed and made with Just Trade, who partner with small fair trade projects, for National AIDS Trust, the UK's HIV rights charity.
By wearing the red ribbon you show solidarity with people living with, affected by, and lost to HIV.
Sisters Olga and Elisa of Yurac Muyo Project in Quito, Ecuador, hand carved the brooch from a single tagua seed. The tagua palm tree grows wild in the South American rainforest. It is used to make beautiful, unique and sustainable items, just like this one.
