31 Bits recently grew into a fancy new headquarters and their crew threw a little party to celebrate.I seriously love the story behind 31 Bits and the way they've structured their brand. The jewelry company is based right here in Costa Mesa. Back in 2007, founder Kallie Dovel met a few women in Uganda making beautiful jewelry using paper beads. Wanting to help the women find an opportunity to sell the handmade accessories, Kallie spent time conceptualizing a brand that allowed them to do just that.
31 Bits gives back to the women in Uganda by providing them with more than just an income but also the opportunity for further education. In a country filled with poverty, 31 Bits empowers women and allows them to support their families and friends. What originally started out as 6 women designing and handcrafting this unique jewelry has now turned into nearly 100.
The entire headquarters was opened up for everyone to check out. The event had a lot of exciting stuff happening - food trucks, drinks, and a little bumpin' and grindin'. There was also the chance to take a gander at their new collection.
It's definitely a cool, local, inspiring story - find out more and take a peek at more of the goods at 31 Bits.
