INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY: A LETTER FROM MONIKA

Dear clients and supporters of Gilded Lace,

Today is International Women’s Day!

As a small business owner and woman, I wanted to share this important day with you.

Both of my grandmothers were lace makers in Europe. I was inspired to start Gilded Lace in their memory and honor the women that originally made and wore lace. The lace jewelry we make for you is part of the history of women across the world.

On March 8-12, we would like to give 15% of all sales to ‘Women on Wings,’ an organization that partners with social entrepreneurs to create one million jobs for women in rural India. Female entrepreneurship is obviously a topic that’s close to my heart, so we’re very excited to be working with Women on Wings and hope you’ll take the opportunity to learn more about what they do – click the image below (of a fashion show put on by female Shrujan artisans at Lakme Fashion week!):

Warm regards,

Monika Knutsson
