¿Qué es lo que hace únicas a nuestras UNIQUES?

UNIQUES es una palabra que conlleva un significado muy especial para Trollbeads. Estas Beads son creadas en los talleres Trollbeads en India y Africa para despues ser vendidas alrededor del mundo. Todo comenzó como un pequeño taller de caridad, para terminar convirtiéndose en una parte muy importante de Trollbeads.

"Si realmente quieres ayudar a las personas en los países en vías de desarrollo a crecer económicamente, debes enseñarles eso que te hace ser exitoso." Esta frase, tomada de una revista, fue lo que inpiró a Lise Aagaard a comenzar esta increíble aventura.

El Primer Taller

En 2005 Lise y Peter Aagaard crearon el primer taller en Dharamsala, al norte de India. Fue un programa diseñado para ayudar a los refugiados Tibetanos. El taller fue fundado por lo que se conoce como "prestámo blando". Esto significa que si el préstamo no consigue generar ninguna ganancia, la deuda no tiene que ser pagada; y si el negocio termina siendo un éxito, el dinero invertido debe ser devuelto para posteriormente ser invertido en otros proyectos sostenibles.

Los refugiados en Dharamsala recibieron clases sobre como crear Beads de cristal, además se dispuso de una tienda en la calle principal para que ellos pudieran vender las Beads, sin embargo la tienda tuvo que ser cerrada pues requería demasiada atención y se decidió que era más importante que los trabajadores se dedicaran completamente a la creación de las Beads.

How Did It Work?

At first they were producing glass beads inspired from patterns delivered from Trollbeads, but as skills and creativity grew, they started making their own designs, some of which have become part of the Trollbeads collection and founded the base for what would become the Unqiues collection. In 2009 the project expanded and a second workshop was set up in Jaipur, India. This workshop had a focus on helping women with a challenging background or an illness.

Building on their experiences from the India projects, Trollbeads founded the Malawi Workshop in 2010, which gave a group of challenged young people with health issues the opportunity to learn the artistry of making glass beads.

Passion for Uniques

In 2012 Trollbeads started the fourth workshop. This time it was in Dehradun, India at the foot of the Himalayas where the focus was to help exiled Tibetan men.

Trollbeads has helped set up workshops and train people in the art of making glass beads since 2005. The first project was a great success and it was clear that these people had a creativity that could not be ignored. The workshops have creative freedom, which has turned into many beautiful and unique glass beads, giving name to this stunning collection of beads: Uniques. A collection of one-of-a-kind glass beads.
