How is Jolica different from other direct sales companies?
Unique to direct sales companies, Jolica gives its customers the opportunity to purchase unique, handcrafted products and to make a positive difference in the world. Jolica's beautifully designed jewelry and accessories are handcrafted by talented artisans in Peru, Chile, India, Indonesia, Thailand and Nepal. Because we believe it is important that artisans benefit directly from their skill and their hard work, we purchase our accessories following the principles of Fair Trade. On top of that, 5% of every sale goes to the Jolica Foundation, which invests in small community-based health and business development programs around the world.

What does Fair Trade mean?
Fair Trade is a way of engaging in business relationships that is based on dialogue, transparency and respect. As a Fair Trade organization Jolica is committed to long term, ethical trade relationships with its producer partners. Jolica is a member of the Fair Trade Federation (www.fairtradefederations.org).

How can I purchase your products?
Jolica's product line can be purchased through Gift Consultants at home parties, fundraisers, and trade shows, as well as online.

Why does Jolica sell through direct sales and home parties?
The Direct Sales model means women everywhere have the opportunity to develop their own successful jewelry and accessories business, based on their schedule. There are no bricks and mortar stores to rent, nor the expenses of Fair Trade product sourcing to pay for. Home parties are the perfect venue to showcase Jolica's handcrafted and Fair Trade products, both for their story and their beauty. Shopping at home is relaxed, intimate and fun.

Does Jolica do fundraiser events?
Yes. Many of Jolica's Gift Consultants are happy to help fundraisers through Jolica sales.

What projects has the Jolica Foundation supported?
The Jolica Foundation has partnered with cbm Canada and MEDA on a variety of projects, typically focussing on addressing those barriers which prevent individuals from supporting themselves or their family. These barriers may be related health issues such as blindness, malaria, or clubfoot, or cultural issues such as home-bound women in Afghanistan or Pakistan. Others deal with systemic issues such as the lack of appropriate education. 5% of all sales go to the Jolica Foundation.
