New Creation is a non-profit social impact marketplace educating consumers on human trafficking & encouraging shoppers to use their purchase power to empower survivors. New Creation partners with ethical brands all over the world to carry a wide range of products that are made by survivors or artisans in vulnerable communities at risk of being trafficked.
New Creation founder, Sabrina, was inspired by the Zion Project & her time in Moldova. In Moldova, she was able to work on the ground with a social enterprise providing employment to survivors. Sabrina was able to see the impact reliable jobs can have on vulnerable communities. Sabrina began by hosting jewelry parties in her home to provide artisans abroad with a connection to U.S. markets. Eventually this grew and Sabrina co-founded New Creation. New Creation became an e-commerce market & physical shop carrying goods that empower survivors of trafficking.
New Creation’s physical shops in Virginia strive to be a safe space where people can learn and feel comfortable talking about trafficking. I think the education aspect is one thing that makes New Creation really unique. New Creation hosts community events and training programs to educate students, parents, community leaders, and first responders to recognize signs of trafficking + steps for taking action. Since launching New Creation has been able to reach over 5,000 students and 180 teachers through 255+ events.
New Creation partners with 40+ organizations on 5 continents to stock their shop with impactful goods. I sincerely appreciate the wide range of goods New Creation carries. Customers can shop jewelry, clothing, home goods, and more, while knowing their purchases make a difference. I recently had the honor of receiving some goodies from New Creation and love the high quality, mission and design of the goods.
Beloved Flag-The Beloved Flag (pictured above) is such a great reminder to us all! Hang this near your bed, so you’ll see it in the mornings as a daily reminder that you are loved and worthy of love. This flag is made by survivors in Uganda using locally-sourced fabrics from the Uganda markets through New Creation’s partnership with Remnant International.
Day Dream Dolls-New Creation is really unique in their wide variety of toys for kids. Their dolls are ethically made by survivors in Moldova using locally-sourced fabrics from the markets. This is the social enterprise that New Creation founder, Sabrina, was able to work with when she traveled to Moldova. Love that she was personally able to see their work, be part of the process, and now carries their dolls in her store.
Worthy Pouch -This pouch is great for carrying around your cosmetics or using as a pencil pouch. I love the pop of color inside with the assorted African print material. The Worthy Pouch is designed by the New Creation team then handmade + screen-printed by the women of Remnant International in Uganda. What a great reminder to those making and carrying the pouch that we are all worthy of love.
Shine Square Stud Earrings-These beautiful gold dipped earrings are ethically made by survivors in Asia through New Creation’s partner brand Sojourn. All Sojourn items are handmade by young women on the Thai-Burma border. I love the simple style of these earrings and how they can add a pop of shine to any outfit. The gold dipped is a nice touch to compliment other gold jewelry you might be wearing and perfect for fall!
I love all my goodies from New Creation and encourage you to check out the good work they’re doing. I think New Creation is a great place to shop for gifts during the upcoming holiday season. They truly have something for everyone!
