Their motto is "Always Ethical, Always Loved". Stela9 was founded in 2010 by an ex archaeologist turned scavenger hunter. Precious stones, unique handcrafted items and recycled textiles were gathered through meticulous searches and travels to create this ethical and worldly line. Some items are one of a kind and handmade by skilled artisans. A portion of the proceeds directly contribute to the sustainability of the communities that these cherished items travel from.
