Honoring Our First Refugee Employee

We’re celebrating our first refugee to be hired this spring. But like the vast majority of the 14.4 million refugees around the world, our employee will be coming to us after recently enduring the hardships of a refugee camp. Our employee will most likely be coming from one of these 16 countries: Bhutan, Burma, Burundi, Central African Republic, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Laos, Liberia, Syria, Rwanda, Somalia, Togo, Ukraine. Which country do you hope it will be? Share your wish

In recognition of our new employee we are honoring them with our Limited Edition <1 Coordinate Cuff and Single Coordinates Ring. The geographic coordinates featured on each of these newly released pieces will pinpoint the location of that refugee camp giving each of one of you the ability to join us in honoring our first refugee employee and their journey, celebrating the opportunities that are ahead, remembering those who remain behind at the camp and creating important positive change in society. These new pieces are especially close to our heart, and like all of the <1% Collection, they deliver a meaningful backstory through beauty and fashion.

Our first hire will be joining us at our facility in Rhode Island as a part of our jewelry apprenticeship program learning the art of handcrafting fine jewelry and each step of the trade from start to finish, which includes cold joining, fabricating, soldering and casting. Not only will the Coordinates jewelry honor them, but learning from our talented production team and helping to create these pieces will be their first project as a part of the Liberti team.

Our partner, Dorcas International, receives and empowers refugees from troubled regions all over the world, and our employee will most likely be coming from one of these 15 countries: Bhutan, Burma, Burundi, Central African Republic, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Laos, Liberia, Syria, Rwanda, Somalia, Togo, Ukraine. Which country do you hope it will be?

Not only is Liberti committed to creating high quality American-made jewelry, but we’re building a mission-inspired brand to create positive change by employing and empowering resettled US refugees. Our less than <1% Collection was designed to be a social impact conversation starter and iconic symbol to create awareness for the less than 1% of refugees worldwide who are fortunate enough to escape camps and resettle to a new country. Our goal is empower the less than one percent through our apprenticeship programs and to also inspire hope for the 99% who remain behind.

We’re so excited to release our special edition <1 Coordinate Cuff and our Single Coordinates Ring and offer them at a special price on Indiegogo.
