Founder + Designer Kimberly Hartman created JADEtribe in 2009 during her travels to South East Asia. Inspired by the vibrant + intricate textile work and expert weaving that South East Asia is known for, Kimberly began working with local women and creating patterns unique to her brand.
" A little bit beach-y, a little bit bohemian jet set, and 100 percent natural and ethical, JADEtribe is the true embodiment of fashion with a conscience. Whether it’s the handbag repurposed from hand embroidered baby carrier cloths, or the hand braided jewelry that jingles, or the organically dyed and hand loomed traditional textiles, each element of JADEtribe carries in it a piece of Kimberly’s heart and a piece of the hearts of the women in South East Asia whose lives have been improved by making it." - JADEtribe
