When we think about mindful consumption, cost per use is a way of evaluating whether or not your purchase is sustainable or not. Asking questions like “will I use/wear this piece more than 30 times?” “Will I fix it when it breaks?” “When I’ve finished using it, will I extent the lifespan of the item by giving it to someone I know/charity?” All of these actions will decrease the overall carbon footprint of your purchase.

How do you work out the cost per use? Divide the price of the product by 30! We use 30 as this is the average amount of uses items are thought to have.

The story behind Dear Rae

Karin Rae’s love for jewellery began at Stellenbosch University in Cape Town, South Africa, where she studied a BA Fine Art (Jewellery and Metal Techniques). In 2008, she completed a semester at the Pforzheim Hochschule in Germany, which solidified her decision to start a brand of her own. Drawing inspiration from her diverse South African and German familial heritage, Karin breathed life into her dream and launched Dear Rae in 2010. Her commitment to empowering and employing local South Africans has been a driving force in the business. Today, 10 years later, they are so grateful for this ongoing adventure. The journey continues with their most recent development - extending the brand offering to a global audience with the launch of DEAR RAE WORLD. Each Dear Rae piece is designed and handcrafted by Karin and her team of manufacturers at their beautiful workshop in Cape Town.
