Not judged on belts alone

There has been a multiple mutter - "you've won the battle, but I'll win the war" - of late, and I think I should start taking lessons from Farah Malik and Dana Arbib. Born of a personal pact between the Pakistani Muslim and Libyan Jew respectively, A PEACE TREATY, is a socially aware company, creating employment for skilled artisans working in places of socio-political strife. Supporting not only art, but elevating it to international audience awareness.

Inspired by Asian, Middle East, Africa and the hand-crafting cultures within, the stunning accessories not only connect the fashion-pact with incredible wears, but also introduces a level of awareness many wouldn't otherwise come across.

Seasonally, A PEACE TREATY travels to a particular region of the world and seeks out local villages where artist are engaged to re-define an accessory, creating limited edition pieces in unique, regional colourways. This season, the focus was 3-fold - with pieces being influenced by Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan and the aesthetic of desert life.

I've snagged a few of my favourite pieces below - and they can be bought from the A PEACE TREATY website.
