Ethic Goods was started in 2011 when founder Maegan Hawley noticed a problem in her closet. After accumulating all sorts of accessories while traveling, Maegan's jewelry sat on the shelf unused when she returned home. Most of the items came from social-impact organizations with the mission of empowering women. While each piece was special and represented a powerful story, the style didn’t quite fit her day-to-day life in Washington, DC. An unworn piece meant an untold story. Ethic is based in Washington, DC and is now owned by four best friends. We work with our artisans to design each line, and while we are designers by trade, our real mission is to use what we love (FASHION!) to help women across the globe heal, step into their potential, and leave a great legacy for their kids. We believe in solving problems creatively, living with purpose, and loving big. Our artisans inspire us to live a beautiful life, regardless of what has happened. We think their courageous, adventurous and resilient spirit is contagious in each piece. Our China and Thailand lines are handmade by women impacted by human trafficking. Our Ethiopia line is made by women impacted by HIV/AIDS. Each purchase helps to employ one of these women!
