About Us

Social Concept was created with the idea of curating a space with high quality merchandise from socially conscious vendors. For our first round we have partnered with artisans from El Salvador who give back to their community by educating, training, and developing local talent. Together we donate a percentage of profits to various causes. All of our products are handmade and include handbags, women's apparel, jewelry, and eyewear from our sister store Perspective Eyewear who carries independent brands such as Article One, Salt, GLCO, Moscot and Andy Wolf.

We recently visited El Salvador and partnered with Buenavista Optometry on a great project!

Each pearl, each stone, carefully selected in the making of these one-of-a kind pieces. Only real fresh-water cultured pearls and quality stones are used, and all the hand wiring is gold plated. Elevating your look, these pieces are made to accent the beauty that already lies within you.

Eyewear & Face Mask Straps

Handmade straps that accentuate your personality! 

Women's Apparel

We are absolutely in love with our apparel line, designed to be worn around town or on our sandy beaches. Our scarves can be used as wraps and our wraps can be used as coverups! Our ponchos, tunics and swimsuit coverups are perfect for cruising the streets or lounging by the pool. Made with 100% cotton, each item is weaved by artisans in Cojutepeque, a town in El Salvador. By purchasing these items, you are helping keep the traditional crafts alive and improving their wages. 

Make A Wish / Grant A Wish

Handmade bracelets that convey a little about ourselves. Whether it's the strength of our anchors, our ability to change gears or the beauty of our uniqueness, these bracelets serve as a reminder of our convictions and as a conduit for dreams. 

Arrow Bracelet

This bracelet serves as a reminder of your strength, courage and perseverance. The three arrows convey the idea originated in the Down Syndrome community  that the more one is stretched, the further one will go. 

Home Goods

Woven linens and towels, made with 100% cotton. Handcrafted rope baskets that will not only help organize your home but is supporting women build their craft and become an entrepreneurial force. Woodcraft designs fused with metal and a pop of color that are not only unique but allow young men to learn a craft that can translate into a life long career while keeping them away from gangs in El Salvador.
