Brought together by their love for high fashion and the awareness of disappearing indigenous design, Farah Malik and Dana Arbib conceptualized a company that brought income to regions of sociopolitical strife. A Peace Treaty was born in 2008.
An evolving collection of luxury fashion, A Peace Treaty is known for their artisan-level accessories. Each season, jewelry and scarf collections are re-defined using unique colorways, ancient handmade textiles, and metal-smithing techniques that otherwise would not be used. Looking to support artisans’ technique and craft while promoting luxury design for a worldwide audience, these pieces are ethically-produced, providing above fair trade wages and income generation opportunities for disabled, widowed, and/or marginalized women.
A Peace Treaty creates employment for local village artisans in nine different countries – Pakistan, India, Nepal, Turkey, Afghanistan, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and the United States.
