Beauty from ashes, a new lease on life—this is the heart behind WALL OF : JASPER, and the theme behind the use of this humble fabric in the Hessian Collection.
It’s about taking a fabric that has only been known as a cloth to be used and dispensed of when done with, and giving it a fresh purpose. It’s about taking someone who has been stolen and forced into a life of being treated as if they were just a cloth, at the mercy of the user to be tossed aside when done with, and giving her new life and meaning.
WALL OF : JASPER breathes life into the lives of girls & young women who have fallen victim to the sexual slavery; and breathes life into a meek material to create distinguished pieces, and makes hessian famous for its sophistication & adaptability.
“To bestow on her a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair” – Isaiah 61:3
Our hearts do sense that we are here for a purpose beyond ourselves. WALL OF : JASPER creates a way for your heart to tap into the big picture. The Hessian Collection is designed with intention—to bring you joy, and someone else hope. Young woman, young girl: not a commodity to be stripped of her humanity. This was not what she was designed for.
100% of the price you pay for your Hessian Cushion is used to rescue and restore the lives of girls who have been stolen and forced into a life of sex slavery.
Google it and see for yourself the horror of this existence. Choose to see it, and you will be compelled to help—and you can help.
