Pangea Exchange originally launched as Gray Hemlock, an online marketplace focused on fashion accessories that were affordable, trendy & high quality. Until one evening when our founder, Fitz stumbled upon the documentary, "The True Cost" (Click here for info on the film) on Netflix. This film highlights the reality that the vast majority of the fashion items that we all wear are produced in sweatshops with; stunningly low wages (around $3 a day), absolutely deplorable working conditions and frequent child labor.
He realized that it was possible that beautiful items that Gray Hemlock was selling were produced in the same jaw dropping conditions that were highlighted in the film. At that moment, Fitz decided to redevelop & alter the course of our business. We committed to searching the globe to find a set of gorgeous, socially responsible jewelry that is truly affordable, and most importantly makes a full social impact!

Hence, Pangea Exchange emerged & we exclusively list items that are made through fair wages, proper working conditions, no child labor & empowerment programs that are custom tailored to address the specific needs of each artisan community!
