Joy McBrien and Anna Bottila, both graduates of the University of Minnesota, oddly enough didn't meet at the U, but have since become besties, roommates, and co-workers. Soon after Joy started Fair Anita in 2015, Anna joined the mission, sharing a passion for fair trade and women's rights. Now, they work together to build ethical supply chains and inclusive economies for women, working with 8,000+ women in 9 countries. They design products that are cute + ethical + affordable, selling fair trade jewelry and accessories made from recycled materials by survivors around the world.
