Founded in the wake of the 2011 tsunami, we have loved watching our team grow into confident artisans. Our accessories and jewelry products are each made from upcycled pottery, inspired by the beauty we could see even in the brokenness left by the 2011 disaster. We've heard many stories from around the world of how our products have brought hope at just the right time. We operate on the three core values of collaboration, transformation, and blessing. Join us in believing there is beauty in brokenness!
Nozomi means 'hope' in Japanese.
Nozomi Project is a faith-based social enterprise located in Ishinomaki, Japan. We train women to create high-quality jewelry products, bringing sustainable income, community, dignity and hope along the way! Using broken pieces of pottery left in the wake of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami (as well as other up-cycled pottery), Nozomi women create one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry.
