Founded on the beaches of Indonesia and Byron Bay in 2020, Merchants of the Sun was brought to life by two brothers with a passion for jewellery. Motivated by the vision of a zero-waste world; Merchants of the Sun brings to life handcrafted jewellery that inspires their culture to mindfully consume and consciously create.
Dressing you for the future through the balance of ethics and aesthetic.
Recycle. Repurpose. Repeat.
Our motto is make few, design well.
Everything we make takes something from the planet we can't give back. Merchants of the Sun elevates itself as a social enterprise, a company that identifies its direct impact on this planet and the urgency of our climate emergency.
Sustainability is not a fashion statement - it's our mission.
Merchants of the Sun exclusively craft jewellery with fair-trade, recycled 92.5% solid sterling silver. We use wholly recyclable material that can be melted down for reuse. Our silver is sourced from offcuts and waste used in industrial production.
Our packaging is crafted from recycled cardboard and paulownia wood—one of the fastest-growing trees in the world, explicitly farmed for production.
Embodying sustainability from ideation to manufacturing - we batch craft each of our pieces through a 'cradle to cradle' method, ensuring all waste is minimised in production.
Our environmental stewardship confronts and challenges overconsumption and fast-fashion production, to ensure the well-being and quality of life for present and future generations.
Make few, design well.
