Bosphorus is a social enterprise. We are new to the market and we lean on the idea that success does not equal profit, but purpose. We want to create products that speak to our soul and connect us in unity as human beings. When we adorn ourselves, we show who we are. A people that spring from the same source that historically has much more in common than that separates us.
Our primary goal is to support organizations and projects that work for cross-cultural peace and understanding around the world. Our products have ethics and the environment in mind, with consideration for all stages of jewelry production. We only work with selected small local ateliers, because of their expertise, but also because of our desire to protect and maintain a costly metier that the world would be poorer without.
As part of the jewelry industry, we see it as our duty to show decency and accountability when using the earth’s resources. For example, we only use environmentally friendly packaging.
We are a B-Corp Pending company that is undergoing a certification process. With a B Corp certification, we want to prove that we live up to a number of ambitious societal and environmental standards and show an extraordinary degree of responsibility and transparency (https://bcorporation.net)
At home, we are currently engaged in a collaboration with “MellemOs” (https://www.instagram.com/mellemospodcast/?hl=en), a famous podcast serie made by two girlfriends who share their own experiences and talk about topics that are either taboo or cross-border.
We are in the process of launching more initiatives and exciting collaborations. We hope you will follow us along the way.
