Dear Team Adele, we hope you are enjoying your day wherever you are and celebrating Labour day with all its glory. To kindly remind you, Labour day is an annual holiday that celebrates the achievements of workers. Essentially, it was intended to be an annual national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the country. However, the entire world now celebrates workers.
This Labour day, we want you to join us in celebrating our very own artisans who dedicate their talents and time each and every work day to beautifully hand craft your jewelry pieces and bags. If you read our previous post on Fashion Revolution Week and how we choose to share their mission, you will also understand our other reason for this post.
Adèle Dejak boasts a refreshing air of passion that shines through every hardworking team member, from the management and shop sales teams to every beader, tailor and bone artisan. Whether selecting only the very best materials to, creating our handmade lesso fabric bags for packaging, the team works like no other in bringing timeless statements to life and providing you with a beautiful Adèle Dejak experience.
We managed to capture them in their elements over time and also convinced three of them to share with us about themselves and what they think of Labour day . Hope this will enable you to understand how your support for our brand goes a long way into supporting the livelihood of others because without you, there is no them.
