Flont promotes fair trade for artisan designers. As consumer traffic moves online, jewelry retailers force designers to finance all the inventory. Designers are often being paid two years after the initial outlay for materials. Some consumers purchase jewelry, only to return it after days or even months of use, borrowing and damaging jewelry at the designer's expense.
Flont provides unique financing to its designers - we purchase much of our jewelry up front, and pay a monthly lease on the rest. Designers use this constant cash flow to fuel their creativity, designing wonderful pieces for our clients.
Jewelry sharing promotes sustainability. The sharing concept itself is better for the environment. Each jewel is being enjoyed regularly, by more consumers, rather than spending most of its life in a dark box. We recycle all materials from used-up jewelry and select designers who use recycled materials. We consider sustainability in everything we do, such as our reusable packaging.
