We have officially launched our newest collections!

Julie Ragolia for Senhoa
& Charmed by Senhoa

 

Each Senhoa jewelry piece is individually handcrafted with care, pride, and love by a young woman who is a survivor of, or vulnerable to sexual exploitation in South East Asia. Your purchase will create opportunities for survivor artisans to earn an income, share their stories and raise awareness against modern slavery.

But why jewelry? 

When a young woman is rescued from sex slavery, she is placed in shelter care. During this time, she is often without employment and an income source. 

Jewelry making was chosen for its easy skill acquisition, providing survivors with the immediate satisfaction of success, as well as the medium of art therapy. 


How we help

Senhoa artisans earn a fair trade salary. We also provide educational scholarships and support services to equip them with the ability to make and sustain healthy choices.

Senhoa jewelry is sold worldwide.100% of proceedsfrom jewelry sales go directly to the rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration of young women sold into sex slavery in Southeast Asia.

 

What it means

Each time you purchase and wear a Senhoa jewelry piece, you are doing more than just accessorizing. You are making a statement about what you believe.

Share their stories. Raise awareness against modern slavery.Accessorize your conscience.™

 

Statement from Designer Julie Ragolia...

I’m honored to collaborate with Senhoa on this collection. All young women should have the chance to live a full, empowered life, and Senhoa’s efforts in Cambodia are an inspiration. Their model of education and skill building provides strength, courage and support to so many that are otherwise vulnerable. The collection very much mirrors my love of minimalism and art; with some pieces taking an average of five hours to make by hand, there is a true sense of craft and dedication in each piece. Creating a collection for both men and women was important to me. I’m a menswear editor, and my personal style is heavily influenced by men’s fashion, but the pieces are unique in that they truly appeal to both a masculine and feminine sensibility equally. I hope this broader appeal will help propel Senhoa’s ethic and aesthetic further into retail.
